About: "Karl Gerstner is a man possessed by color. With a scholar's passion for inquiry, he has devoted nearly 30 years to exploring the properties of this vast but elusive phenomenon of which, like the weather, we all have opinions but limited understanding. And with an artist's gift for exposition, he is able to convey his findings to us through color structures so clearly orchestrated that on seeing them, we can virtually catch color in the very act of invading our sensual apparatus."

"In this book, Gerstner presents the pure sensation of color with great precision and logic. He explores color physically, sumptuously, yet with cool, formal clarity in the book's seventy color plates. He also writes about the historical, philosophical, and psychological aspects of color in a series of essays, citing examples from Aristotle to Andreas Speiser, from Goethe to Max Ltischer, and showing how they apply to his own work."
