      "Longtime PANTONE scholars Leatrice Eiseman and Keith Recker explore 100 years of the evolution of color’s sociocultural footprint through over 200 works of art, advertisements, industrial design products, fashion trends, and other aesthetic ephemera, thoughtfully examined in the context of their respective epoch... each decade comes with a detailed color palette contextualized in an essayistic history of the era’s sociocultural trends and milestones.
