Publisher: Wiley-Interscience; 2 edition (November 8, 2004) | ISBN: 047166006X | Pages: 224 | PDF | 5.7 MB
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.
