5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best books on colour you could buy!, 24 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beaded Colorways: Freeform Beadweaving Projects and Palettes (Paperback)
Only five stars? I wish I could give this book 10 stars!

I love this book - I have studied colours for years from many aspects (from interior design to web design, through nearly all arts and crafts...) but had never come across a book about colours which made so much sense.

The beading techniques and projects are beautiful, wearable, well explained and clearly illustrated but this book goes way beyond beading and jewelry projects: it explains in simple and practical terms how to combine colours. It reveals the secrets of what makes a colour scheme/combination 'work'. I have studied colour for years and at different levels (from the science to the art (including web graphics and computer arts) as well as the psychological effect of colours) but this book really opened a new door for me!

With the book, you also get 2 colours wheels and sliders to help you plan colour combinations such as 'complementary', 'analogous' etc.

It is well written, artistically and clearly presented. It delivers much more than it claims - unlike so many other books...

I love books - I think this one will be 'my book of the year'!! Thank you Beverly Ash Gilbert.
