OpeningWhat is color? You can’t taste it. You can’t smell it. You can’t hear it. You can’t feel it. But you know it when you see it. You can see a color.WhatIsAColor?2Summary: (from my library catalog) Illustrated by the authors, this book provides an introduction to color through text and pictures of familiar objects and scenes.
