Deb Menz is a color genius. Her well written and easily understandable book includes a color wheel and various overlays which clearly show the ways in which color can be coordinated and remain pleasing to the eye. She is a color expert but not rigid in her color "rules". Following Deb's instruction one is left with a clear sense of how to make the combinations that please you into combinations that will make everyone else say "WOW".
Excellent book for fiber artists on the use of color in your projects.
I find this book very helpful in generating ideas for color schemes that I might not have otherwise thought of and it's really helped me interpret colors more effectively.
