Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"For any have questions about making basic color choices: there are a host of color-related questions to consider in any home or personal project, and using a question/answer format, Eiseman tackles many of them. Questions range from how cultural background affects color choices and perceptions to the best colors of use in health care settings, how to use guidelines for hair coloring, considering the effects of a new color choice on personality, and much more."

"Must Read."

"Color consultant Eiseman, who is also executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, offers an intelligent, highly opinionated, question-and-answer guide to the use of hue, saturation and value (to say nothing of tone, undertone, shade and tint)....For the pure suggestiveness of color, Eiseman serves ample food for thought. Amidst the color jungle, it’s a blessing to have a guide like Eiseman."

"Your color questions answered. Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute and author of ‘The Color Answer Book From the World's Leading Color Expert’ answers more than 100 questions about color in her new book, touching on home decor, fashion and personality."
