Intro
This book is designed as a work of reference as well as an attempt to present a 'system' rather than a 'theory' for teaching the art of color. . . In the various chapters reference is made to the multifold application of this color system, which it is hoped will prove of value and interest both to the student and to the layman, and helpful to the artist, the craftsman, and the layman in solving problems encountered both in effecting combinations of color and in the mixing of paints.


About the Author
Michel Jacobs articles on 'Color' were published in the Montreal Star in August 1913 and in the International Studio Magazine in April 1916 followed by another discussion in the latter magazine for November 1919. During the three years previous to 1913, this system was taught by the author in art classes. Although at that time it had not been elaborated, the underlying theory was the same as that to be presented in the following pages [in this book], and today many painters are using it in their work.
