‘Color is really the mise-en-scène in which everything else takes place’. Peter Mendelsund, Graphic Designer
Yale University Press is proud to announce the release of the digital edition of Interaction of Color. One of the most influential books on colour ever written, now in the 50th anniversary year of its publication, Josef Albers’ masterwork achieves its full, interactive potential in this groundbreaking new application.
In addition to the full text of the best-selling book and the original set of over 140 colour studies, the forthcoming Interaction of Color app for iPad features insightful commentary from a variety of experts. Graphic designer Peter Mendelsund, textile designers Denyse Schmidt and Christopher Farr, artists Brice Marden and Anoka Faruquee, architect Annabelle Selldorf, and Brian Mullan, design director of Fab.com are all featured in the App’s video elements, providing commentary on Albers’ theories as well as the use of colour in their professional practices.
‘What I think is so brilliant about Albers Interaction of color is…it’s a really great way to get students to think more philosophically. It’s very pragmatic on the one hand, but it gets them to think about what’s at stake in making art’. Anoka Faruquee, artist and teacher
