Josef Albers was fascinated by colour, and his passion propelled the development of a course on the subject, which he brought to the renowned Black Mountain College in North Carolina. This course evolved and changed over time, reaching its fullest development at Yale, and the publication of Interaction of Color in 1963. This comprehensive and important book and portfolio is the culmination of 30 years of effort, education and exploration.
This lot consists of the complete first edition, from the limited edition of 2000, containing 80 folders with 150 original silkscreen prints, die-cuts and collages, loose as issued. The prints with the commentary brochure are in a clamshell box, which together with the clothbound volume of text are housed in a cloth slipcase. It was published by Yale University Press in 1963.
