The Color Index 2 picks up where the first book left off. I have not seen another resource that digs as deeply into the subject of color palettes. The book is organized by hues so if you already have an idea of a dominant color for your design, you're sure to be able to quickly find a set of colors that work together beautifully. I keep this book right beside my computer. Being a web designer and video producer, the book is an invaluable tool that assists me in producing visually appealing work products.
