Hi all. Can anyone recommend a good book on the fundamentals of color theory? Storaro's book is a little out of my price range. I have never had any real education on color theory in either my undergrad or graduate classes.

Thanks for any help.

Hello Bill
I would recommend the book by Dr R W G Hunt 'The Reproduction of Colour' Fountain Press. You can get second-hand copies from $3.16 plus P&P from Abe books

There have been a number of editions, if you are particularly interested in digital then you would need the latest edition which is around $160.
