This is a condensation of Itten’s major work, “The Art of Color”, published in Germany in 1961. It calls attention to the outstanding visual effects of simultaneous contrast and offers several dramatic examples. It also describes and illustrates Itten’s famous twelve-part star for colour organization, designed in Weimer, 1921. Suggested exercises throughout the book develop the essential skills of colour control.
“I have been a professor for 15 years. ‘The Elements of Color’ has been required reading for many of my courses. It is not only enriching as a color theory document, but it helps expand the artist or designers possibility of using, arranging and conceiving color.” — reviewed by Stephanie Rose Bird.
