From the Publisher:

The scientific principles and concepts of color--the nature of light, perception and the measurement of color--are compiled in this introductory reference. It goes beyond standard textbooks on color science to explore the complexity of color as a science and as it relates to art, evolution, and perception. It provides a relatively simple but technically correct and up-to-date study of the subject.

From the Back Cover:

A single source for the essential scientific principles and concepts of color–now revised and updated

When it comes to color, people can agree on generalities: the sky is blue, grass is green, roses are red. Yet color is actually a highly complex phenomenon, dependent on a multitude of factors such as light conditions or chemicals in the eye and brain. Researchers disagree on whether colors even exist in the world, or whether they are purely products of human consciousness. As these intellectual debates continue, new technologies are greatly increasing our ability to model and reproduce colors.

Color: An Introduction to Practice and Principles, Second Edition provides a practical, up-to-date resource for understanding contemporary theory and applications of color. Concise, nonmathematical, and not overly technical, this text draws together knowledge from a number of disciplines to present a comprehensive overview of color science.

Greatly revised and expanded from the previous edition, this Second Edition:

  • Features new information on perception phenomena, color order, and recent technological advances
  • Touches on historical, philosophical, and art-related topics
  • Includes a glossary of important terms
  • Offers a useful timetable of color in science and art

Ideal for color scientists, vision scientists, and industrial chemists and engineers, as well as artists and designers, Color: An Introduction to Practice and Principles, Second Edition is a single, accessible source for the principles, concepts, and applications of color.
