pbs color documentary

PBS’ web-series Off Book has been at the forefront of online, educational, and geeky programming for the last few months. They’ve delved into indie video games, internet fandom, glitch art, and more. The most recent episode just went live, and it’s a compelling and brief introduction to color.


Delving into color theory, physical and psychological responses to color, color preferences through history and more, it’s a lot of information in under eight minutes. They talk to Thomas Bosket of the Parsons the New School for Design, Leslie Harrington of the Color Association, Doty Horn of the Fashion Institute of Technology, and GIF makers Mr GIF.

And now that you’ve had your senses sharpened by that blast of information, how about testing how good you are at differentiating colors?
