    More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog As a professional photographer, color theory in my work is extremely important. I am always looking for books that can help deepen my understanding of how to create the most impact with my images. When choosing this Pantone book, my first concern would be that it was directed at scientists or professionals in the color industry. As such it would have been dense and inscrut...

    I love colour! My creative output, pastimes and life is all about colour, so a book about it was an obvious choice. And I'm pleased to say I enjoyed it. I was well written, with lovely images and the colour theory was very interesting. A great companion for any creative. This book was provided by NetGalley in exchange for my honest review of it.

The palettes of colour are inspiring and the character of colour pieces are useful for deciding on colours for brands. I c...

    This book has a lot of very valuable information to help artists. It covers defining the basic terminology, what the temp?, complex colors, discord & dissonance, the psychology of color, color & mood, what colors say about you, changing colors & changing lives, color trends & forecasting, naming colors, and lastly the importance of marketing. Not to mention the pictures in this book are so inspiring!

    excellent tool! This is a lovely and fairly comprehensive color harmony book that would be a nice reference for all creative professionals. I also loved that, unlike a lot of color harmony books I've seen, this one utilized and referenced pantones. highly recommended to keep in a library for ongoing use or even just color inspiration!

    This book should be considered an absolute must for everyone who has any interest or need of color understanding.

You can read it all the way through with delight or use this as a handy guide to dip into as you work...
