Albert Munsell s system of color notation has been taught for nearly a century, but
the applications and uses of the system are constantly changing. Long and Luke s text
teaches the importance of a standardized language to communicate color and the
factors affecting how we perceive it. The three dimensions of color hue, value, and
chroma are also described. There is a brief contextual description of other color systems.
This text bridges the gap between the theory and appreciation of color. Munsell
color charts, to be assembled with new, enlarged chips, are the basis for additional
projects and exercises. This set is ideal for students of design, art, fashion, architecture,
interior design, manufacturing, color science, and anyone else who works with or is
interested in color.
