If you're from the "I don't know zip about color - but I know what I like" school of color theory, this book's for you. You won't find color wheels or letures on color harmony here... just 500+ tried-and-true color combinations derived from actual design work - posters, packages, even giftwrap - created over the past century by designers, artists and color experts. You'll find historical color combinations from the Victorian period, Art Deco era, Far-Out Sixities, Rave craze - plus current color combiantions, such as limited color, "bad color" and much more. Even if you don't know what you're looking for, you'll know it when you see it here.It's not just what colors you use, but how you use them. That's why the color combinations in this book are arranged in simple, sample layouts rather than pages of out-of-context swatches. Complete with color formulas in CMYK, these layouts show you which colors for backgrounds, borers, type, outlines, panels and small text, so you can easily adapt them to your designs.

Versatile

I really appreciated Cabarga's explanation of how colour combinations are culturally influenced and have evolved throughout history. I have quite a few retro design projects ligned up so his coverage of colour use in the past will be of great help to me. Information on colour-wheels can be found freely, so I didn't feel the book lacked for the want of it. There was a lot in here that would make it ideal for an art classroom library such as the designs illustrated in different colours that show quite effectively how colour can influence mood and response. Really fascinating stuff.
