From the Preface: "In his book 'Kunst der Farbe' (The Art of Color) 1961, Johannes Itten likened his theory to a coach in which a traveler can make rapid and safe headway along a stretch of paved road; as soon as he reaches the end of the road, however, he must alight from the coach and continue on foot. This comparison appears particularly apt when it is applied to the theory and practice of design and form. Among the students' names are those of artists, architects, and educators that are famous today and have long left the coach to make their own, independent way, and whose life's work can already be assessed as an integrated whole. I met many former students working in the most diverse fields, often away from the glare of publicity. I was again and again struck by the fact that often a single exercise among all the many stimulating ideas emanating from Johannes Itten's teaching had become the basis of a man's entire work."
I found this book and similar ones from the Bauhaus era, facinating as whether we like it or not it has influenced world architecture, modern attitudes to design, fashion and style and even to teadching.
It is not a great book in the sense of life changing but is great from the point of view of putting things in context.......the contemporary design world was not created yesterday, it goes bacjk a long way.
