Interaction of color by Josef Albers ( Book )
62 editions published between 1963 and 2009 in 8 languages and held by 1,619 libraries worldwide
Josef Albers' "Interaction of Color" is a masterwork in twentieth-century art education. Conceived as a handbook and teaching aid for artists, instructors, and students, this timeless book presents Albers' unique ideas of colour experimentation in a way that is valuable to specialists as well as to a larger audience. Originally published by Yale University Press in 1963 as a limited silkscreen edition with 150 colour plates, "Interaction of Color" first appeared in paperback in 1971, featuring ten representative colour studies chosen by Albers. The paperback has remained in print ever since and remains one of the most influential resources on colour for countless readers. This new paperback edition presents a significantly expanded selection of more than thirty colour studies alongside Albers' original unabridged text, demonstrating such principles as colour relativity, intensity, and temperature; vibrating and vanishing boundaries; and the illusion of transparency and reversed grounds. In a larger format and with enhanced production values, this expanded edition celebrates the unique authority of Albers' contribution to colour theory and brings the artist's iconic study to an eager new generation of readers.

Albers and Moholy-Nagy : from the Bauhaus to the new world ( Book )
9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 672 libraries worldwide
This beautifully illustrated book highlights the contrasts and correspondences in the lives and work of two of Modernism's greatest innovators, Josef Albers (1888-1976) and László Moholy-Nagy (1895-1947). Beginning in the 1930s, Albers and Moholy-Nagy each developed a rigorously abstract language that condensed art to its visual fundamentals: line, color, texture, light, and form. This language experienced a creative explosion during their Bauhaus years, when both artists moved freely between media and disciplines. Essays by leading scholars follow the artists' separate paths through to their emigration to the United States, where each continued to push tirelessly the conventions of artistic practice--Albers at Black Mountain College in North Carolina and then at Yale University, and Moholy-Nagy in Chicago at the New Bauhaus School and the Institute of Design. As highly influential teachers, Albers and Moholy-Nagy became important catalysts for the transmission of Modernist ideas from Europe to America.

Josef Albers : formulation : articulation by T. G Rosenthal ( Book )
2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 255 libraries worldwide
"Josef Albers's Formulation: Articulation, issued as a limited edition set of prints in 1972 and published here in book form for the first time, is a unique opportunity to understand the ideas and methods of one of the most influential artists and theorists of the twentieth century. Albers drew on over forty years' work in a variety of media - woodcuts, sandblasted glass pictures and oil paintings - for these rigorous yet lyrical explorations of colour and form, and they can be seen as the summation of his creative life." "All the elements of Albers's thinking and experience on colour and geometrical relationships are embodied in Formulation: Articulation. The series of prints were carefully sequenced by the artist so that they can be examined and appreciated for their visual interaction or as striking works of art in their own right. Statements by Albers about the images are provided on two fold-out sections and the text by the art critic T. G. Rosenthal sets the volume within the context of Albers's life and work."--BOOK JACKET.
