This is just one of the best design books ever... it talks about a design philosophy that kenya hara has and use for his work, you really must get it! you won't regret it! i have many books of design but none talks about the most important and basic knowledge in design, about the color white, as design element not as a color is pretty interesting.

Good overview of why white space in a design is so crucial to a great design. The new angle it taught me about was how empty space invites us to fill it and encourages creativity.

A personal meditation on the color and feeling of white, Hara's work is a series of overlapping observations that build to a whole. This is not a measured study of the topic--if you're looking for that this short book is not for you. If you are interested in Japanese culture as viewed through the concept of whiteness, this book is for you. This is high-quality Lars Muller fare.
