Lanation of complex color theory principles 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 uarter of a million copies sold in its various editions since 1963 Interaction of Color remains an essential resource on color as pioneering today as when Albers first created it Fifty years aft. Josef Albers was first a student then an instructor and finally a professor at the famous Bauhaus school of art and design in pre war Germany When the Nazis forced the closure of the Bauhaus in 1933 Albers emigrated to the United States where he was made head of the Black Mountain College School of Art in North Carolina He later joined the design faculty at Yale UniversityAll along the way Albers sought to extend and deepen his understanding of how people perceive color both to use it in his own work and to teach art students about how color juxtapositions interact with human visionWith this book he lays it all out with a set of exercises using high uality reproductions of relatively simple color paper compositions to illustrate the effects of color interaction The color plates are of sufficiently high uality to work uite well for anyone with normal vision Even people with colorblindness can probably benefit from most of the illustrations and surely from Albers lucid descriptions of the effects What you learn will likely be useful in your work no matter whether you are a painter printmaker worker in stained glass or an interior decoratorNote that this book is NOT about teaching artistic composition or techniue It is laser focused on its subject matter the optical effects of color interaction You will find no better book for this although I would also highly recommend The Elements of Color by Johannes Itten who was one of Albers teachers and colleagues in the Bauhaus as a fine complement to Albers book Get them bothThere are expensive editions of this book available but this 50th anniversary softbound edition which should be well within the budgets of most art students is than adeuate for learning how colors interact

    The book is written in a style that advices the reader on how to teach color experimentation to others, rather than instructing the reader herself. The book contains a few color plates in the back they get the point across, but don't make for a visually engaging reading experience. The book obviously had a great influence on many people, but if you're looking for something "user friendly" rather than historically author

    It's a great book but as another reviewer mentioned, to get the most out of it, you have to do the colour experiments yourself. For this reason, I'd strongly recommend buying the iPad app rather than (or as well as) the book

    Whilst acknowledging the validity of conventional colour theory, Albers distinguishes between "Factual Facts" and "Actual Facts", i.e., between the science (physics and biology) of colour perception and the psychology of colour perception. This is illustrated through a series of optical illusions including where two colours appear as three or three as two. The concept of "colour elasticity" is used to explain how colours (and monochrome t
