Overview

Albert Munsell's system of colour notation has been taught for nearly a century, but the applications and uses of the system are constantly changing. This text teaches the importance of a standardized language to communicate colour and the factors affecting how we perceive it. The three dimensions of colour - hue, value, and chroma - are also described. There is a brief contextual description of other colour systems. This text bridges the gap between the theory and appreciation of colour. Munsell colour charts, to be assembled with new, enlarged chips, are the basis for additional projects and exercises. This set is ideal for students of design, art, fashion, architecture, interior design, manufacturing, colour science, and anyone else who works with or is interested in colour.
