I’m reading a great book called “Interaction of Color” by Josef Albers. Albers was an artist mostly known for his work “Homage to the square”. He studied and taught at Bauhaus in Germany, but moved to the US during World War. He then taught at Yale and there he wrote this book. The book is about how color can deceive our eyes and how colors can affect each other.

In the examples above the two little squares are the same color, but it’s really hard to see them that way. They look different to me. You can find many awesome examples on the web or you can buy the book for $3 on eBay. I’ll never look at colors the same way :)
