Text fascinating and informative but this book is about colour and yet most of the plates are reproduced in black and white! Very disappointing!

I am doing a thesis on film and this book has been of great assistance. The content is to the point and clear. Narratives are easily located.

Colour and Culture was more detailed. This later version is abbreviated and has some more up to date info from neuroscience. I prefer the original.

J. Gage debates the connection betwen color theory and culture: Is the way we percieve colors from culture or nature.
Then there is a collection of essays, from Newton predecesors to Goethe, Chevreul and Kandinsky by historic order. I found it interesting and sometimes compeling.

Despite this book being based around colour theory, the majority of the book relies on the text. However the theory behind it is very interesting! Perfect for my dissertation thank you.

More than sistematic book is a collection of essays about color and culture throu history: is the perception of color historic or determined by nature? what's the connection betewn language and colour theory? Newton Optics and his predecesors, Goethe, Kandinsky and Chevreul are interestingly exposed
I've found it rather interesting and sometimes compeling.
