has been added to your Cart. These and other questions are answered in the Eckstut&'s fascinating study of color. Lovely book with all sorts of information for people like myself who have difficulty understanding the relationship between color as light and color as the property of an object.

These questions are answered by Joann Eckstut and Arielle Eckstut in, The Secret World of Color: Science, Nature, Culture, Beauty of Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, and Violet. The Secret World of Color is a stunning coffee table book processing colorful, vivid, and glossy paged illustrations which certainly do colors justice. It is simply short of breath-taking (kudos to the designer and printer). Although the work targets all readers young and old; don’t expect a dummied down book aimed at a simpleton.

Arielle Eckstut, Joann Eckstut. Why is the sky blue, the grass green, a rose red? Most of us have no idea how to answer these questions, nor are we aware that color pervades nearly all aspects of life, from the subatomic realm and the natural world to human culture and psychology.

There are some stories that are showed in the book.

Nothing personal
Lovely book with all sorts of information for people like myself who have difficulty understanding the relationship between color as light and color as the property of an object. I think I learned more in 20 pages than I did from years of art lessons. Especially about the way color mixes. No wonder I was so frustrated! The level of detail can be a little intimidating to a complete newbie like myself, but with some patience I have started to understand the basic principles.

This should be a standard text for all budding artists. Or just folk like myself who wondered why a yellow filter did certain things for a black and white photograph. Or even someone wondering why that fabric they chose looked so awful with CFL bulbs when it was great with tungsten.

Truly an eye opening work. And a nice thing to leave on the coffee table.

Now that I can speak color I have been noticing hidden messages all over the place. On television, in advertising, even in the carpet I walk on every day. I didn't know I would be so tortured by revealing a hidden world of messages. The world is a scary place when everything starts talking to you. You think it's just a tree but it's a cipher for German World War II submarines. It's like never leaving a library. Don't even ask what the outfits you wear actually mean.

This was a wonderful book! The authors tied in science, emotion, history and a very solid grounding in the present. It included how different cultures view color, how history has viewed color, the emotions behind the colors we see, the science behind how we see what we see, and even a brief tour of what color means in the universe. If you thought this book was about decorating or fashion, you would be wrong. This book is about life, and how we see it.

EVERYONE loves this book! It's beautiful, well designed, interesting and playful.

I'm a nanny and I've entertained the kids (5 and 8) with it for hours. I initially borrowed it from the library and ended up renewing it twice :)

I lugged it around in my tote bag for over a month. I brought it to soccer practice once and several of the mom's took it and spent a good 30 minutes looking through it together. Another day on the playground it got pulled out, and a parent and her 3 children all got involved in looking through it.

The kids asked me for the book again when we had a long drive recently, and were very disappointed I didn't have it with me.

I bought two: one copy for my coffee table and the other for a Christmas gift (and am considering ordering a few more for my gift drawer). It's truly a great one-size-fits-all gift for all ages.

We tend to think of aesthetics and science as two separate paths of thought. Artists vs Engineers. Humanities vs Technology. But this book brings the two together in an unexpected and eye-opening (so to speak) way. One amazing explanation after the next as to how plants, earth, heavens, evolution, and the human brain come together to bring us the perception of color. You can read this book and try to wrap your mind around the science, and you'll be a better person for it. Or you can go through page after page of gorgeous images and be awakened and more aware of what you see. Highly recommend for anyone who is a designer or artist as well as science types.

I attend a painting workshop and this book was recommended by the instructor. I expected a book explaining how to mix color and manage color relationships, instead this is a fascinating and humorous read on the science of color. The language used is accessible, contrasting myth and fact to help the layperson understand how we arrived at the concept of color and how our understanding has evolved over time.

This book is SO dope. I have been reading it outloud with a friend and it continues to impress us with the wild array of research and information included, not to mention stunning imagery. The perfect mix between a coffee table book and educational textbook!!
This is one of the more interesting color books out there. It won't teach you to design with color if that is what you are looking for, but this is a fun and fascinating read. I plan to re-read it on plane or a beach.
