This is an excellent book if you want to compare and analyze the basic color palettes used by various art movements and at different times in history. The unique double spiral bound book allows you to look at color illustrations and flip the palettes independently so you to compare and contrast palettes and artwork. I think this would be useful for artists and designers of all sorts including theatre designers.

I'm a graphic designer and this is a great book to look for color palettes. It explains what period the palette is from and gives you cultural information from that period. The palettes are different and beautiful. Margaret Walsh is a highly respected woman for her color knowledge.

I am a designer and this book is a must for anyone wanting to have suggestions of color palettes. It shows groups of colors, unexpected colors, that go together and goes through "eras" like deco, 50's as well as palettes for cultures, like Mexican, Turkish. I have given it to people who are redecorating their houses and need suggestions for colors. Great!!!

This book is an incredible reference for color theory and history. The inclusion of full panels of color reference make it one of the most useful books on the subject I've ever found.

If you are into color over the ages, this is a great resource; well designed and covers all aspects of color in art, fashion, and industry. The color wheel is alive and well with so many interpretations and applications..

I am in fashion design and have found the color palettes very useful in designing collections. Also, the text is informative without being boring.
