Second edition. Spine slightly cocked, bookplate on front paste-down endpaper, one sentence underlined in ink. 1951 Hard Cover. xvi, 439 pp. The purpose of the book is to clarify and integrate design principles and terminology on the basis of common experience and common understanding. On this neutral ground of reason the conservative and the radical artist may meet and exchange mutually helpful ideas. It demonstrates that the time arts and the space arts are built on principles of order whose aesthetic validity is based on their psychobiological and sociological origin in the fundamental pattern of human behavior. These principles retain their basic character, and effect similar results in all art forms. These principles establish the basis for universal criteria that promote a keener perception and a broader, more integrated concept of aesthetic order.
