The cover attracted me to this book. It shows the same graphic done on 4 colorways. This clearly illustrates the effect color can and does have on design.
The subtitle is : A Review of Past Tradition and Modern Theories.
To quote the back cover (always a good resource)
"This is an essential basic book on color, written by the best-known colorist of our times, for beginners seeking a through grounding in the comprehension and solution of color problems and for mature artists and teachers interested in keeping abreast of recent findings and conclusions".
"Beginning with an informative history of color circles, the author proceeds to a simple straightforward discussion of the traditional principals of color harmony".
He then goes on to the chapter The Harmony of Color about the natural pyschological paths of color arrangement (interesting).
The book includes advanced principles in color use. It has eight pages of full color pictures and numerous B & W illustrations.
Each color plate is discussed. The Principles of Color is a book for anyone really interested in Color Use and Theory (as I am)
A glossy cover paperbound book first published by Schiffer Publishing in 1969 with new material added in 1987. Obviously this is a popular book, it is still in print. It has 96 pages.
