Book Review: Integration of Color by Josef Albers

Color is the most relative medium in art.
— Josef Albers

 

Along with being a photographer, working with color is an important part of my job. During the day, I am responsible for color matching products with the physical print of the product. It is tedious and time consuming, but the more I do it, the easier it gets and I enjoy the "puzzle" of matching the colors. I couldn't be more thankful that I took Color Theory class in college, it definitely has come in handy so much!

My creative director reached out to me and gave me the Interaction of Color by Josef Albers. It is a comprehensive book of color studies that have been done to see how various color, tones and shades interacts with each other. For anyone who is interested in learning more about color, I would highly recommend this book. Being an artist or someone who works in the print field could also benefit from this book. It is very detailed, but the beautifully designed pictures give visual understanding to the theories.
