The author has collected in one place one of the most extensive bibliographies on color in existence, which will facilitate additional inquiry into the field of color and color harmony. The book describes the process of constructing the bibliographies and offers an impressive analysis of twelve books that occupy a unique place in the history of color. The twelve books cover a one-hundred-and-fifty-year time span to include the works of Goethe, Chevreul, Helmholtz, Munsell, Katz, Kandinsky, Pope, Wright, Judd, Arnheim, Itten, and Albers.
Bibliographies include a retrospective bibliography of 318 specially selected books on color and color harmony with copyright dates prior to 1975; a general bibliography on color and color harmony in art containing a broader representation of 1,450 titles from antiquity forward; and a compilation of bibliographies of color. A subject cross reference of titles gives 37 color categories ranging from aesthetics to vocabulary cross-referenced by topic and date of publication.
