Has anyone read Joseph Albers "Interaction of Color"? Can you recommend?

If this is the large book with geometric shapes printed about 30 years ago-it's very good. Many well made points.

It's being offered on Amazon on $11.00. Worth a try at that price.

This is likely the small commercial production variety of the major work by Albers. The larger original had hand screened inserts and the price was in the hundreds of dollars. The small version has some good info, but lacks the superb examples.

Thanks all for the input. Always good to have an artist opinion instead of book reviewers.
