Vera is featured in Pantone’s new book “Pantone: The 20th Century in Color” For those who don’t know, Pantone is the authority in colors for the art and design world, producing their “color books” of swatches for designers to use to match colors worldwide.
I love what they say about her use of color—in the chapter on the 1970s:
“She turned everything from garden flowers to ancient Incan motifs into scarves and dresses, home textiles and posters. Her customers trusted Vera to manage the rainbow for them, and as a result, they were often some of the most confidently colorful ladies around.”
