if you can put up with all the ad banners, WebRefence has posted
three excerpts from the color chapter of a really good book[1] that
goes into some detail about picking colors (watch wrap):


1. that "really good book" is "Web Graphics for Non - Designers"
which you can buy at Amazon.com at the following URL (beware


if you use that URL, it also gives a kickback to evolt.org, which is
nice, seeing as how we're not making any money at this...

you should know that the authors of the book are me (Adrian
Roselli), Isaac Forman (from here as well), Nick Boyce (he's been
spotted here, too), and Dave Gibbons (i've never met the guy)...

Read the evolt.org case study
Usability: The Site Speaks for Itself
ISBN: 1904151035
