Leonard Koren

Arranging Things: A Rhetoric of Object Placement


Leonard Koren, aesthetic theorist and author of Wabi-Sabi for Artists, Designers, Poets & Philosophers, uncovers the underlying principles that govern how Western designers arrange things in three-dimensional compositions.

Inspired by Greek and Roman notions of rhetoric – the ancient art of argument and delivery – Koren elucidates the elements of arranging rhetoric that all designers instinctively use in everything from floral compositions to interior decorating. Illuminating and perfectly in-depth, this book will change the way you see, and arrange, your world.

Featuring illustrations throughout by Nathalie du Pasquier.
