    DescriptionJosef Albers' "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 Albers' singular explanation of complex colour theory principles. Originally published by Yale University Press in 1963 as a limited silkscreen edition with 150 colour plates, "Interaction of Color" first appeared in paperback in 1971, featuring ten colour studies, 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. This new edition presents a significantly expanded selection of close to sixty colour studies alongside Albers' original text, demonstrating such principles as colour 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 Albers' contribution, this landmark edition will find new audiences in studios and classrooms around the world.
