"COLOR BASICS has a refreshing range of up-to-date illustrations that represent a variety of media, cultures, and both high and low sources--thus suggesting the polyvocal nature of contemporary art."— Paul Ryan, Mary Baldwin College
"COLOR BASICS is a wonderful resource for the college freshman. It is clear, concise, and uses engaging visual examples." "There are sections of writing that are unique to any textbook. These are areas where visual metaphors are used to clearly explain to the reader in such a way that he is able to grasp the mutable nature of color... The analysis and descriptions in this text are far more engaging than the average color text. I have so much sympathy for my students because color texts tend to come in two varieties--extremely scientific with language that is alienating to the novice and ridiculously plebian and enthusiastic, with visual examples that are completely irrelevant to today’s design student. COLOR BASICS almost reads like a novel in comparison, and has great visuals as well." "I find COLOR BASICS to be an innovative, compelling text that will be very useful. The writing style is clear and unpretentious... I was supremely satisfied with the text, which proved to be clear, lyrical and captivating."— Sandra Williams, University of Nebraska, Lincoln
