The new exhibition “Saturated: The Allure and Science of Color” at @cooperhewitt

has captivated artists, designers, scientists, and sages.

It features museum objects as well as quite a few stunning rare books from our library collections.

See more of this particular book,
Des couleurs et de leurs applications aux arts industriels à l’aide des cercles chromatiques 

(1864) in our Digital Library.

Cover of May I Come In, 1969. Cover perhaps illustrated by Lois Elhert.  (Full credits list Marilyn Bass, William Baum, Tom Cooke, George Guzzi, John Kuzich, Jerry Pinkney, Donald Silverstein, Lynn Sweat, Joseph Veno, Jean Winslow and Fred Witzig.) Think what you will about children’s books, but this one has some really great, technically interesting illustrations. Cheap on Amazon, all the Ginn & Co. books from this time period are really great. Buy them and scan them!
