This book is divided into three parts. Part I outlines the elementary principles of the eye as a sense organ and the basic facts of color vision, including types of color blindness and methods of testing. Part II deals with tools and techniques, such as spectrophotometry, standards in colorimetry, and the reproduction of pictures in color. Part III deals with physics and the psychophysics of colorant layers. The book will be useful for all who deal in colors, particularly the manufacturer.

The book is a happy combination of science and common sense and is written by one of the outstanding scientists in this field.
