Publisher Comments:

Josef Albersandrsquo;s Interaction of Color is a masterwork in art education. Conceived as a handbook and teaching aid for artists, instructors, and students, this influential book presents Albersandrsquo;s singular explanation of complex color theory principles. and#160; Originally published by Yale University Press in 1963 as a limited silkscreen edition with 150 color plates, Interaction of Color first appeared in paperback in 1971, featuring ten color studies chosen by Albers, and has remained in print ever since. With over a quarter of a million copies sold in its various editions since 1963, Interaction of Colorand#160; remains an essential resource on color, as pioneering today as when Albers first created it. and#160; Fifty years after Interactionandrsquo;s initial publication, this new edition presents a significantly expanded selection of close to sixty color studies alongside Albersandrsquo;s original text, demonstrating such principles as color relativity, intensity, and temperature; vibrating and vanishing boundaries; and the illusion of transparency and reversed grounds. A celebration of the longevity and unique authority of Albersandrsquo;s contribution, this landmark edition will find new audiences in studios and classrooms around the world.

Marta Schipporeit, April 5, 2014 (view all comments by Marta Schipporeit)
Interaction of Color is considered to be the encyclopaedia of color. Written by Josef Albers, a prolific artist and educator from Germany’s Bauhaus and later Yale, he shares his intrinsic knowledge and understanding of the dynamics of color. Intended to be coupled with the Color-aid 314 packet, you can discover for yourself the phenomenon of hues!
