Dark Side - Colour Me Badd

Methuen Handbook of Colour
A. Kornerup and J.H. Wanscher
Methuen, London, 1963

Charts, dictionary, harmony, contrast, names and samples - all in living colour. This was the colour reference book of the period and it's usefulness continued for many years until usurped by Pantone, RAL and others. Originally a Danish publication (think Denmark's famous Modernist designers), now quite collectible with dustjacket. It is still an fascinating reference and object of beauty. (Sorry to disappoint Pink Floyd fans).
