Artists, designers, printers, and crafters alike would agree that the selection and use of color is of great importance to their work. And yet, a great deal of misunderstanding surrounds color mixing. Michael Wilcox offers a total reassessment for the principles underlying color and color usage. This revised edition of the original Blue & Yellow Don't Make Green -- the first major breakaway from the traditional concepts of the three primary colors: red, blue and yellow -- contains more than 80 pages of new information on the transparency and makeup of colors and includes many new color mixing swatches.
