Originally published in 1963, Interaction of Color remains one of the most influential books on color ever produced. Written by Josef Albers during his time as chairman of the Department of Design Yale University, the book relayed his complex to a generation of artists, students, and collectors (well, those who had not been part of the Bauhaus or attended Black Mountain or Yale) through commentary and 150 silkscreen color plates.

This week, Yale University Press is releasing a new edition of Interaction of Color. All is faithfully reproduced in a two volume slip covered set. Also incorporated are color studies from the Albers archive – student work from the 1960s. Nicholas Fox Weber, executive director of the Josef and Anni Albers Fund, offers the forward.

At $200, it is well worth the price.

Available now through Amazon.
