Interaction of Color: New Complete Edition
A luxurious two-volume edition with the complete original plates, text, and commentary

"Absolutely stunning."--Felix Salmon, Reuters

Josef Albers's masterwork, Interaction of Color, is one of the most influential books on color ever published. Originally issued in 1963 as a limited-edition set of commentary and 150 silkscreened color plates, the book introduced generations of students, artists, designers, and collectors to Albers's unique approach to complex principles.

This beautiful edition brings Interaction back into classrooms and studios and onto bookshelves, where it will find an eager new audience. It replicates Albers's revolutionary exercises, explaining concepts such as color relativity and vibrating and vanishing boundaries through the use of color, shape, die-cut forms, and movable flaps that illustrate his astonishing demonstrations of the changing and relative nature of color. Also included for the first time are studies from the Albers archive, produced by the artist's students in the early 1960s.

This celebration of Albers's legendary achievements is an essential addition to any serious art library.
