Good Book for Color Theory
Posted 05 July 2007 - 08:03 PM
There used to be a great "library" section for the site, but it seems to be down. There was a suggested book on color theory that I would like to get. Does anyone remember which one it was? Also, would anyone recommend other good books on color theory? Thanks.

For a more studied approach, Josef Albers' "Interaction of Color" is excellent but dense. Albers was an artist himself who taught at the Bauhaus, and his study has an artistic foundation which is part of what makes it useful rather obscurely academic. Laszlo Moholy-Nagy's "Vision in Motion" also has an interesting section on color, but I remember it less vividly.
I've always meant to read Goethe's writings about color, but I haven't looked into it as much as I should.
