This is a new book but the dust jacket is "the worse for wear", it also has a 1.5 inch rip on the back which I have taped up. I bought it planning to add it to my regular New Needlepoint Books category, I had one other color theory book listed there at that time but I never did get it listed before our last move.
It was a bad move, overall. The movers destroyed some treasured furniture and a number of other things. They also tossed the boxes around and piled them up with no attention paid to Fragile markings.
Anyway, the book is new but......
It's original cover price is $49.50. Because of the dust jacket damage I will sell it for $40. (with free shipping and it is a heavy book).
Below is a picture of the back of the book
Color and Fiber will teach textile artists (which includes stitchers) how to use and control color.The authors present schemes for solving color problems.
The book is divided into 3 sections. The 1st "presents essential terminology, ideas and definitions about light and color".
The 2nd "describes how light, dye and pigment work with fibers because different individual fibers, yarns and fabrics differ in their responses to light and color".
The 3rd section has practical applications for the information in the first 2 sections.

All and all, this is an important book for anyone who wants to get deeper into the uses of color.
