Itten: The Elements of Color
"A Treatise on the Color System of Johannes Itten, Based on his Book The Art of Color"
Edited by Faber Birren, translated by Ernst van Hagen.
Colour physics. Subjective timbre. The twelve-part colour circle. The seven colour contrasts. Colour mixing. Colour impression. Colour expression. How well do you know them? Would you like to know them better?
This book simplifies and condenses the theory of Johannes Itten’s major 1961 edition The Art of Colour—making his most profound and obtuse arguments accessible and of practical use. Keenly academic and simply designed, The Elements of Colour is an invaluable resource for visual artists, graphic designers and those who harbour all manner of chromatic proclivities.
