Two-Color Graphics is the latest installment in Rockport's series that includes Minimal Graphics, Touch Graphics, Large Graphics, Small Graphics, and Color Graphics. Two-color graphics offer a range of effects from somber and elegant to edgy and bold. More importantly, they're inexpensive to print, which perhaps explains why two-color printing is so widely used. Despite its popularity, however, two-color printing has a stigma of looking cheap compared to four-color pieces. This book puts that myth to rest by showing how dynamic effects can be achieved with simple, inexpensive two-color printing. Besides its simplicity, it has a style all its own, which can convey sophistication, elegance, and integrity. Included is a "color finder" section designed to show readers a variety of color combinations for various projects. Each featured project is also shown in thumbnail size in 15 to 20 different two-color combinations.
