Josef Albers’s “Interaction of Color” App for iPad


3 of 5 stars
What’s this?

“Interactive edition of one of the most influential books on color ever written offers users an entirely new way to experience Josef Albers’s original masterwork.”

“Interaction of Color” first appeared in print fifty years ago, and went on to become a classic of art theory. I admit that I was unfamiliar with it until a friend showed me this app the other day, so I can’t speak to the quality or usefulness of Albers’s writing. (That may also explain why this site is black and white.) But this app looks beautiful and it’s free, to boot (though there some of the content is locked up behind in-app purchases).
