Color Problems: A Practical Manual for the Lay Student of Color by Emily Noyes Vanderpoel
This beautifully published facsimile edition of Emily Noyes Vanderp's pivotal work on colour theory 'Color Problems: A Practical Manual for the Lay Student of Color' has been published by Sacred Bones and The Circadian Press. It is the first time this important book has been republished since 1903.
Vanderpoel's text provides a comprehensive overview of the main ideas of colour theory at the time, as well as her wildly original approaches to colour analysis and interaction.Vanderpoel wanted to democratise the scientific study of colour theory and make it available to all and this poetic book, which aligns an examination of the principles of colour theory with her own colour analysis and Colour Note watercolours, should be seen as an important addition to field.
Oh, and with a foil stamped cover, belly band, lay flat binding and a thoughtful selection of paper stocks - it's a beautiful addition too!
