Duotone is a lovely book all about two-tone palettes and limited color schemes in design. Even the cover of the book has a two-tone palette. Duotone has three major sections: color matching, duotone effects, and gradation. The purpose of this book is to show how effective and strong limited color schemes are in design. By having duotones from a variety of projects including book covers, posters, brochures, posters, and more, this book is useful for every kind of designer. Each page also includes swatches if you find yourself interested in using similar colors to the designs in the book.

This book explores designs created by more than one designer, showing how duotones can effectively be used with different styles, compositions, typefaces, and illustrations. Although I do not own this book, I found myself drawn to it. I’d love to buy it one day soon to look through all the pages to better understand how to limit the color palette in my designs. I think this book is great source for inspiration if you’re interested in limited color schemes.
