Good. Connecting readers with great books since 1972. Used books may not include companion materials, some shelf wear, may contain highlighting/notes, and may not include cd-rom or access codes. Customer service is our top priority!
Great information- even a beginner can understand this information.

Good technical review of Albers' theories but earlier reviewers who said it was too lean on illustrations are correct. Helpful to professionals in the visual arts.

I would recommend the full hard cover version.
Next time, I will buy the full hard cover version, rather than the text only soft cover. The visuals are the important part of the book.

Putting On The Brakes
Have you ever tried to drive your car by looking in the rearview mirror? Or gone for a walk with someone having your eyes closed guided only by their direction. Mr. Albers takes us into the twlight zone of seeing. He slows us down and makes us pay attention to our sense of sight. IT IS NO JOY RIDE, but like trying to see a 3-D picture, when your eyes finally focus correctly, all you can say is WOW!!
