Color Works: The Crafter's Guide to Color by Deb Menz

Crafters can explore colors with confidence in a variety of mediums with the advice in this book. The principles of color theory are clearly and simply explained and applied to knitting, spinning, weaving, surface design (including stenciling and rubber stamping), hand and machine embroidery, beadwork, and paper collage. Basic color concepts are presented in sections on color description, values, contrasting and complementary colors, warm and cool colors, undertones, and using color relationships. A pull-out color wheel and handy color chips in perforated format that are easy to remove and use for planning, matching, and shopping for supplies are included.

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".

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.
