Product Description


Belongs in every serious painter and art historian's library. --The Art Book

Encapsulates almost half-a-century's research on Albers' part ... we're lucky to have this book. Though costing £60, it almost seems a bargain. --The Architects' Journal

...a feast of colour and fine printing ... [Albers's] sense of colour comes across superbly in this most desirable book: highly recommended. --The Spectator

A masterpiece of graphic art ... one of the great graphic works of the 20th century and, arguably, the greatest sequence of abstract prints ever made. --The Independent on Sunday

Beautiful ... illuminating text by T. G. Rosenthal. --The Spectator

Superb ... in their book form of theme and variation [these prints] have a new eloquence and will vastly enhance Albers's accessibility. --The Times Literary Supplement

Editor is right-on with his review 18 Feb. 2009
By James A. Woronow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Beauitful book and color theory of Albers is explained very well. Color plates are wonderful. I am not gonna talk about his color theory - who would listen? Read the book. I wish, and was hoping, that their would be more of a bio about Albers but that was not the point of this wonderful book.

For those that love color, this is a must have! Retrospective not only of Homage colorways, but also other Albers work that I had never seen before.

Good quality reproductions 15 Dec. 2007
By Marc - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Nice coffee table book for sure. Inspirational for geometric abstract artists, even vector artists and illustrators. Great for color fans, obviously, as Albers was one of the color masters. Would not pay full price.
