I do not see these books before I order them, wholesale, and have only the sketchiest of descriptions. Sometimes the book is spot-on and sometimes I am surprised (or dismayed).
This book on color belongs in the Surprised group. This is not a color theory book. It has no instructions on how to use color or correct color mistakes.
What is does have is 145 pages of absolutely gorgeous pictures of color. All color, how it is used, lived with and how it can attract or amaze you.
The book is divided into color groups and has very little text. Just page after page of full color pictures of the amazing ways color is used all over the world.
There are some interesting color use and combination ideas here but you have to find them for yourself, in the pictures.
The book's index has a small picture of the page's contents along with telling you what it is.
A beautiful book.
