Book About Line
0

Is there available any book or masters/phd thesis strictly about what I would call 'line,' or 'curve?' Not even about shape, and not about line in relation to its surrounding, but about why certain lines look 'smart' and other lines look 'unitelligent', while some look 'cool' and others look 'sophisticated?'

Art in Theory is an awesome 3 book series all about the theory of art. Within the three volumes the 'line' is extensively essayed by many. I highly recommend having these books on the shelf.
