Reviews - What do customers think about Color Management: A Comprehensive Guide for Graphic Designers?

Color Management: A Comprehensive Guide for Graphic Designers  Aug 28, 2006
A very solid academic primer on color theory and color management. VEry recommended.
Wow!  Aug 20, 2006
I had this book reccomended by a good friend of mind and it rules! This is everything you need to know about color and design. If you see a piece that you like, it'll tell you the process color code! It also comes with a CD & the cover rules! Buy this book.
Excellent design book for graphic desingers  Oct 20, 2005
This is a well-designed book showcasing some students work as well as more known designers like Ahn San Soo, and Art Chatry-in a word, many design examples in this book aren't the ones you seen in hundreds of other graphic design books out there. The work shown in the book aren't placed there randomly like a catalog display. They all effectively accompany a particular topic in discussion-about color.
There are seven chapters in the book:
1. Intro
2. The Terminology of color
3. Basic Color Theories
4. The Creation of Color Wheels
5. Color Calibration and Overprinting
6. Color Prepress and Printing
7. Behavioral Effects of Color
Note that the book for graphic designers. Those who want to study color theories and psychology of color may want to look else where. What l really like about this book is the discussion of prepress work and explaning step-by-step how to manange and correct colors. Like what you can find in the book, "Pantone Guide to Communicating with Color", there are also 19 pages of "color associations" which package designers may find useful. This book also blows away "Color Index." The book comes with a CD containing PDF files of "hue swatch system."
