Book About Line

Ryan Maelhorn's picture

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?'

Perhaps this?

William Hogarth discussed “the line of beauty” in The Analysis of Beauty.

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.
