Description

FOUNDATIONS OF ART AND DESIGN has a logical and structured organization, moving from micro to macro topics, enabling students to build on ideas and concepts of design, and better understand the material. The author has written a book flexible and visual enough to suit any design course and every design student. Hundreds of examples of contemporary and classic art reflect the world students inhabit, and along with the book's unique visual glossaries, make this text an ideal foundation of design principles.
