The Theory and Practice of Color


This book, published in 1918, is one of the early descriptions of the use of pigment.

It includes clear descriptions of primary, binary, and complimentary colors as well as tints, shades and grayed colors.

The best features are the charts of colors which are hand painted onto separate pieces of paper and glued to the pages in the original book making the colors vivid and true and easy to understand.
