For another example of the expressive possibilities of pure line, consider John Crocker’s album cover for Schubert’s violin music. A blank set of staves goes through a gradual, comically plausible metamorphosis into a visual equivalent of Schubert’s romantic music, with flourishes and embellishments. Such lines can quite literally be called lyrical, a term used in describing art that is the visual equivalent of intimately emotional melodies.

关于纯线条表达潜力的另一个例子参见约翰克罗克的作品,图中是为收录舒伯特小提琴曲的专辑所设计的封面。它展示了一组空白五线谱如何经过循序渐进,有趣又自然的变形转变成与舒伯特浪漫曲风相匹配的视觉符号,线条的运用复杂而华丽。当艺术品的视觉效果等同于触碰心灵的情感旋律,我们会将它描述为抒情性的。我们可以毫不夸张地将克劳克设计的线条当做一曲抒情的旋律。


Directional Line

Lines may also be used by artists to steer the eye in a certain direction. In the poster for a luxury train by the French poster designer A. M. Cassandre, our eye is directed from the bottom to the top of the poster. We are placed squarely on top of the rail that is perpendicular to the bottom edge of the poster. Our eye races along the rail to the point where all the rails converge and disappear on the horizon. The immediate impression is that of speed and elegance in covering great distances. These directional lines lead us effortlessly to our destination, as the poster suggests the train will do—and even beyond, to the North Star (the name of the train).

指引性线条

艺术家也会用线条引导欣赏者看向特定的方向。在为一列豪华列车设计的海报中,法国平面设计师卡桑德尔将我们的视线从海报底部引导至海报上端。我们仿佛被不偏不倚地放在一条铁路上,轨道的方向与海报下边缘垂直。我们的视线沿着铁道追溯而上直至所有铁轨汇集于一点并消失在地平线中。通过这幅海报我们获得的直接印象是奔驰千里的高速和优雅。指引性线条将我们轻松地引至终点,海报暗示我们这也正是这列火车能做到的——甚至更多,它能载着我们触碰到北极星(列车的名字)。

Shape and Form

Throughout the book, we will be using the word shape to refer to defined two-dimensional areas. As we use the term, a shape is flat. We will reserve the word form for three dimensional areas, also called “volume” or “mass”. But flat shapes may appear on the surface of three-dimensional forms, and two-dimensional works may create on a flat surface the illusion of forms.

形与状

贯穿全文我们将用“形”指代作品的二维平面区域。用这个词时文章所指的形状是平面的。我们为三维立体部分保留了“状”这个词,或者用“容量”或“体积”。不过平面的“形”也可能出现在三维的“状”中,另外二维作品也能在平面上创造出“状”的错觉。

伊夫圣罗兰的logo也是卡桑德尔设计的哦,另外贴一张北极星特快的另一个海报(柯南里有一集也有北极星列车,不过当然不是同一列,不过这个名字很有渊源)
