The 50th anniversary edition of a classic text, featuring an expanded selection of color studies The landmark 1963 book by Josef Albers . . . isnt just for aspiring artists. Its mesmerizing illustrations are a revelation for anyone interested in color theory and human perception.Pilar Viladas, New York Times A visionary work.Malcolm Jones, Newsweek Josef Alberss classic 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 Alberss singular explanation 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 quarter 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 created it. Fifty years after Interactions initial publication, this anniversary edition presents a significantly expanded selection of close to sixty color studies alongside Alberss 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 Alberss contribution, this landmark edition will find new audiences in studios and classrooms around the world.

Interaction of Color, the landmark 1963 book by Josef Albers, . . . isnt just for aspiring artists. Its mesmerizing illustrations are a revelation for anyone interested in color theory and human perception.Pilar Viladas, New York Times One of the most beautiful books in the world. . . . Interaction of Color is not solely for artists, though generations of them certainly owe Albers a debt. It is for anyone who wants to get under the hood and understand why and how we see the world the way we do. . . . A visionary work.Malcolm Jones, Newsweek Anyone who is teaching himself any aspect of design will be cheating himself and his students if he fails to come to grips with this book. . . . This volume, with its sequence of lessons learned, perceptions achieved, and (therefore) powers mastered, is more than a landmark in design education: it is the geological trace of a man who is himself a landmark in design education.Industrial Design The publication of this famous book in paperback is an event. . . . It is clearly written and easy to understand. . . . This book ought to be owned by any serious student or teacher, regardless of the kind of painting he does.The Artist The book that influenced me the most is Interaction of Color by Josef Albers. It helped me to learn about colour.Orla Kiely, Elle Decoration I think this is possibly the most important book ever written about colour.Robin Foley, Image Interiors & Living By the end of the book you will better understand the effects of colour intensity, temperature and more.Artists & Illustrators, 21 Must-Read Art Books Selected as a 2007 AAUP University Press Book for Public and Secondary School Libraries The text of Interaction of Color provides the careful reader with the content of Josef Alberss famous color course. His teaching is based on learning by direct perception, not by theories or color systems. There are many books on color on the market, but no one combines eyesight with such profound insight as Josef Albers does in Interaction of Color.Hannes Beckmann
