Pantone® The 20th Century in Color was co-authored with Keith Recker. The twentieth century brimmed with color and this richly illustrated book documents the evolution of color across those hundred years with more than 200 touchstone works of art, products, décor, and fashion. They reveal the palettes that provided the visual foundation for each very unique decade. Examined in insightful text and appealing images, this book creates a resource filled with both observations of the past and inspiration for the future.
In the preface of Color: Messages and Meanings, author Leatrice Eiseman states, “In my multi-faceted career as a color consultant, speaker and author, I continue to study color and observe that the psychological messages and meanings of color apply to so many areas of design. What does differ is the application and context of color. Color: Messages and Meanings is all about the emotional response to color, the latest, up-to-date guidelines and inspiration of effective color combinations including the integration of color trends. Vibrant red is no less exciting on the printed page or website than it is on a product or the packaging that holds the product. Whether or not the bright red is appropriate for the intended usage and targeted consumer is the decision to make. This book is to help you make those decisions.”

Color is a catalyst for feeling – about how we look, decorate our home or office, plant in our garden and relate to each other. The right colors stimulate or relax our senses, release happy memories, reflect how we feel about ourselves and our personal space.
In these pages I have selected the questions people ask me most often and have broken them into the areas that most affect our lives: emotional responses; wardrobe planning, makeup, hair color, and accessories; decorating home and office for ourselves and for those we live and work with; health; and gardening.
