Fun and simple, Mark Gonyea‘s book covers primary, complementary and analogous colours, as well as saturation, value and the colour wheel. There are six short chapters with only a few sentences per page and all pages are brightly illustrated.
Chapter Two shows the moods various colours invoke and Chapter Six discusses black and white: White is pure. White is clean. Black is mysterious. Black is sophisticated. Illustrations on these pages include snow and a tuxedo.
A Book About Color will fit well on your nonfiction shelf.
