Selected Literature References
Presented in this section are selected literature references on various topics concerning both the additive and subtractive primary colors from our extensive library. The perception of color in the human visual system, whether in paint, printed materials or video displays depends on the interactions between the primary colors. Included are references to books and review articles that discuss numerous aspects of color theory and how they may be applied.
