Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis
6 x 9 inches. 464 pages. 344 b&w illustrations. Includes subject timeline, an extensive list of sources (largest, most complete bibiliography on the subject), and index. This is an encyclopedic sourcebook on the history and theory of Modern-era camouflage, both biological and military. It provides detailed information about pioneering studies of protective coloration in animals since the late 19th century, and the application of those same principles for military purposes during and after World War I. Organized alphabetically by subject, it focuses on the contributions of artists, architects, theatre designers, filmmakers, zoologists, game hunters, chemists, physicists, and optical physiologists-even automobile stylists and golf course planners. The involvement in camouflage of scores of well-known people (whether military or civilian is documented, among them Abbott H. Thayer, Everett L. Warner, Norman Rockwell, Walt Disney, Ellsworth Kelly, Bill Blass, Seymour Reit (who originated Casper the Friendly Ghost), Max Bill, Jon Gnagy (Learn to Draw tv series), Harley Earl, and many many others. Much of the information contained was discovered in archival sources and has never appeared in books before. Written by the author of False Colors: Art, Design and Modern Camouflage, and Cook Book: Gertrude Stein, William Cook and Le Corbusier.
