"Notan: The Dark-Light Principal of Design" by Dorr Bothwell and Marlys Mayfield. Copyright 1968, this is Dover Edition published 1991. A very interesting, heavily illustrated book. From the forward:

Notan is a Japanese word that means dark-light. The word, however, means more than that. The principle of Notan as used here must be further defined as the interaction between positive (light) and negative (dark) space...The concern of this book is with Notan's practical applications to design. It accomplishes this purpose through a series of six problems of progressive difficulty intended to direct the art student as well as the practicing artist toward a new way of seeing that will eventually enable him to experience Notan directly for himself.

This book is in good condition, although the softcover has shelf wear and an area of sticker residue. Pages are clean. Book 8 3/8" x 8 1/2" measures and has 79 pages.
A word about shipping: U.S. shipping rate included in this listing is via media mail, slow but economical. If you need this book in a hurry, I can ship via Priority mail at an additional cost. Please convo me for details.
