Sick of clients complaining that the colours delivered on their jobs differed from those agreed, Lawrence Herbert, an employee in the early s at Pantone, an American printing company, decided to create a universal colour-matching system for designers, printers and customers. Within a few years his elegant decks of cards featuring tinted, coded rectangles had become ubiquitous in studios worldwide. More recently the Pantone brand has been making a play for the consumer market.

Its product range, featuring the distinctive blocks of colour, even includes a series of mugs in varying shades of brown, a fun wheeze for tea drinkers seeking the perfect brew. How disappointing then that its latest offering, a book charting the evolution of colour during the 20th century, is rather dry in tone with an ugly, old-fashioned layout.

There are, however, ideas and images to cherish in this decade-by-decade gallop through years of predominantly American fashion, interiors, toys, art, advertising and products โ€” from Rose O'Neill's giggling Kewpie babies of the early s, to the vivid s Bakelite billiard balls used in American pool halls, or the candy-colours of Japanese anime.

There are also fascinating visual examples of how tastes developed along with social changes: While Kate Middleton's outfits hog the headlines today, the book shows Lady Diana in brown corduroys, green wellies and regal red, embodying the Sloane Ranger look of the early s.

Authors Leatrice Eiseman and Keith Recker It's an unusual lens on the last century: What was happening in society literally colored our lives, through upholstery, wall paint, rugs, and other textiles and accessories. For anyone who relishes that trip down the chip aisle, salivating over Purple Opulence and Moonless Night, Pantone: The 20th Century in Color is a must-give.

What surprises, however, is the larger historical picture that the hefty tome creates. The colors are organized by decade and by timely reference, including the fashion, television, news, art and design that inspired them. It's marvelous to leaf through or read in greater depth.

Both well-known and seldom-seen art illustrates the trends Most decades have eight palettes presenting a broad spectrum of color contrasts with an entertaining text that touches on countless cultural events As the century draws to a close, many images prompt a rush of memories as colors recall the spirit of the times.

After a decades-long suffrage movement, women were granted the vote in the United States in The Jazz Age brought African-inflected rhythms and African-American performers into the limelight for the first time.

Sessue Hayakawa, a Japanese actor, became one of Hollywoods highest paid talents.

Young womens skirts got shorter. Their hair got bobbed.

And many inhibitions faded into the background. Makeup, once the domain of actresses and prostitutes, brightened many lips and cheeks. Prohibition and its unintended by-products, speakeasies and moonshine, made breaking the law a game. Rebellion was in the air, perfumed with cocktails and cigarettes, and it was expressed in a color palette anchored in intoxicating Apricot Brandy and Winetasting.

Artist J. Leyendecker channeled the sensuality of the 20s into commercial illustrations that tempted customers into downloading not just clothing, but an image.

Thanks for being a subscriber.

His iconic Arrow Collar man made a giant of the company he came to symbolize. Good looking, athletic, and sexy, he suggested that wearing an Arrow shirt made you the same. Not surprisingly, Leyendeckers colors were at once sensual and wholesome, a combination advertisers continue to pursue to this day. But even in the relatively freewheeling atmosphere of the 20s, shirt downloaders would have been surprised to learn that the Arrow man was modeled after Charles Beach, the partner with whom Leyendecker lived for almost fifty years.

The openness of the decade allowed idiosyncratic talents like Clarice Cliff to thrive. She took a warehouseful of defective pottery and decorated it with bright enamel patterns for her line of Bizarre Ware. Assisted by a small team of painters known as Bizarre Girls, she offered a burst of happy and affordable color to many homes.

Society hostess and artist Florine Stettheimer also worked with sunny tones, but only for her own delightand that of the talented New Yorkers who flocked to salon-style gatherings in her colorful home. Both Cliff and Stettheimer mixed bright citrus colors with quirky doses of pink and purple.

Another unique talent, artist Raoul Dufy, was invited by fashion designer Paul Poiret to bring his sensibilities to textile design. True to the bold spirit of his era, Dufy simplified form and color, often at a very large scale, and in doing so had a profound impact on textile design.

As manufacturers near and far emulated his strategies, floral motifs became more modern in their layering of geometry and simple painterly gestures. They also replaced Dufys preferred black and white with a seductive palette of beautifully faded colors.

Speed was also seductive in this era.

Over thirty million cars took to the roads over the course of the decade, introducing new freedom to many. Luxury trains and ships lured passengers with twin promises of style and speed. The notion of travel evolved from something only for the very rich or the very daring into the idea of the pleasure trip accessible to the many.

Exquisitely drawn travel posters promised coppery suntans and glamorous palm-shaded watering holes.

Pantone: The 20th Century in Color by Leatrice Eiseman and Keith Recker โ€“ review

A leisurely Nile cruise was among the favored destinations for European travelers. But interest in Egypt went well beyond boat trips when Howard Carter discovered the tomb of King Tutankhamen in Extensive news coverage gave the public detailed images of furniture and statues that had not seen sunlight in over three thousand years, and all things Egyptian became a craze. Gold and the colors of inlaid stones made the Tutmania of the 20s glistenas a vogue for Egyptian-inspired objects swept the globe.

Egyptian references were among the many influences to combine in the internationally popular Art Deco style.

What started as a rarified style of furniture and interiors for wealthy interwar Europeansas conceived by legendary talents like mile-Jacques Ruhlmanngradually became a more accessible and streamlined language of shapes and finishes. Eileen Grays exploration of steel tubing and other industrial materials opened new avenues for Art Deco designers. Industrial materials were also explored, with intellectual rigor, by the highly influential Bauhaus school in its pursuit of a union between art, craft, design, and technology.

Instructor Marcel Breuers tubular steel chairs are still icons of industrial design. What is less remembered is the Bauhauss exploration of color and form, and the emotional and spiritual aspects of each.What is true of us as individuals is also true of culture at large. Advanced techniques and cheaper production costs today however make it necessary for designers to use metallic tones with greater sensitivity.
