What I'm Reading

I've always had a passion for pattern. I've had a copy of Richard M. Proctor's Principles of Pattern Design on my shelf for over 30 years. And every time I pick it up, I notice something inspiring that I never noticed before.

I just recently obtained a copy of Josef Albers' Interaction of Color. The revised edition with unabridged text and selected plates. Along with my color flash cards, I'm assembling rectangles of solid colored paper to execute the color exercises in the book. I'm up to the chapter on transparence and space-illusion. I'm taking my time with this one. I keep going back to the beginning.
