PANTONE The 20th Century in Color

We caught a glimpse of the upcoming book, PANTONE The 20th Century in Color and are already salivating. The book traverses 100 years of color – from the Pale Gold (15-0927 TPX) and Almost Mauve (12-2103 TPX) of the 1900 Universal Exposition in Paris to the Rust (18-1248 TPX) and Midnight Navy (19-4110 TPX) of the countdown to the Millennium.

Longtime Pantone collaborators and color gurus Leatrice Eiseman and Keith Recker identify more than 200 touchstone works of art, products, décor, and fashion, and carefully match them with 80 different official PANTONE color palettes to reveal the trends, radical shifts, and resurgences of various hues. Color lovers rejoice and pre-order because we’re sure you’ll want this book! For an inside look, click here.
