From the Publisher. Creatives’ love for black and white is a constant. Once the height of image-making and now a creative attitude, the austerely simple yet expressive black-and-white enthralls designers for its stack contrast and evocative power in graphics and text that no other colors can attain.

Black & White presents a new focus on monochromatic graphic design. Be it a brand element, an aesthetic statement, or a low-cost solution, the 130 examples of print art, brand design, art installations, and fashion items in this book manifest the versatility and dramatic appearance of black-and-white blended with photography, special printing, and sometimes shadows and light. In words and selected creative projects, the core of what is a global movement today expounds on a conscious decision to adhere to this limited palette to create, despite the exhilarating color trends and the many high-quality color printing options available.
