My daughter who is away at Art school is taking Color theory and found this book to be incredibly helpful. It is compact, easy to carry, and a volume of information on Color.

This book is a godsend for any graphic designer who isn't great with color combo's on your own. It has ton's of combos AND a web-safe section AND a logo section that is really really great.
