This black and white (B&W) version of Tropiline Bajan Design (USA Design Patent Des 328198 S) was designed to be of special value to students, artists, and academics. It is about the best modern product design ever to come out of an emerging market and is a major advance in international modern art with cultural, personal, and regional influences all synthesized to produce a masterpiece. It is a single line drawn in space as the essence of the design, like Malevich's rotated linear squares, Saarinen's St. Louis Arch, and Brancusi's Bird in Space! Even less is even more permeates the philosophy, which is an amazing chrology of the creative process, the struggles of invative artists, perseverance and determination (as the design moves around the world from Barbados, to Denmark, to China); with a challenge to all emerging markets (and communities) to move forward modern progressive principles in an age of increasing globalization and international cooperation. The B&W version has a chiaroscuro that is very powerful allowing the brilliant modern forms throughout the book to emerge purely.
