Old Life Magazine Article About Color Theory

June 26, 2013

Lately I’ve been scanning through some old Life Magazines, and happeed to come across an issue from 1944 that has an article on color, including such things as additive/subtractive, wavelengths, and the Munsell notation system. It’s the July 3rd issue of that year (page 39.)


There’s a digital copy of it on Google, but the scans are poor. If you can find an actual copy on eBay or the magazine racks at a used book store/garage sale it’s worth a read.
