Summary: Our visual perception of color is the result of a complex interaction of light, chemicals, and the visual aparatus of our eyes and brain. In this book, the scientific principles and concepts of color: the nature of light, color perception, and the measurement of color are compiled into a single reference source. This book contains thorough explanations of key technical concepts concerning light, human vision, and color perception phenomena, examines color reproduction technologies and techniques, and offers a historical review of the development of color theory and art.
