Johannes Ittens is unarguably recognized as the master of color from the Bauhaus school of art. The color star is a valuable asset to any artist or designer that wants to become better with making color choices. However, as any good tool goes the color star by itself won't be much use to you unless you've studied the material presented in one of his books.

This an absolute must for all people who work with fibre, paint or just want to understand colour. The ultimate colour wheel.

Itten's COLOR STAR is a wonderful and useful tool. I wish the price were a bit lower to make it more affordable for students - I would definitely consider adopting it as a tool for my Color courses. Itten's work with color is at once practical, accessible, and sophisticated. The COLOR STAR is a vehicle to experiment with color chords and color schemes, and a means to investigate new color relationships - easy to use, beautifully packaged too. A nice companion to his ART OF COLOR and ELEMENTS OF COLOR.

If you came to me for a job in graphic design and you told me you hadn't studied Itten, I wouldn't hire you. But I'm picky. Please understand who this man is, and understand his philosophy of color. His work is significant.

Format: Paperback
Very disappointed by the "book", which actually consists of a set of wheels,
with a 4-page booklet which does not explain much. I returned the book.

How can the color wheel cost $976.98 on Amazon.com and CDN$ 23.93 on Amazon.ca? WHY, HOW can a set of papper discs and a booklet cost over nine hundred Dollars?
