Book Description

2 May 2006
Formulation : Articulation, the summation of Josef Albers creative life, is now published in book form for the first time. Albers drew on over forty years work in a variety of media woodcuts, sandblasted glass pictures and oil paintings to create the 127 abstract images, which explore colour and form. This volume retains the layout of the original portfolios, with one, two or four images across two pages, and Albers comments, including key passages from his own writings, are supplied in two fold-out sections.

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

'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

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality reproductions 15 Dec 2007
By Marc - Published on Amazon.com
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.
