    Great gift for a hard to impress Art Student

    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.

    Great Color Combo's!

    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.
