Munsell Color Blog… Where Color Expression Comes To Life

Color expression comes in many shades.  Thanks to the work of Albert H. Munsell, color expression has never been easier and more accurate.  If Munsell were here today, he would most definitely have blogged about color and his work in helping you communicate color more effectively. So in the spirit of Munsell’s passion for making sense of color, we created the Munsell color blog to continue Munsell’s legacy of color expression in art, industry and education.

Visit the color blog often to learn new and interesting applications for Munsell Color from art and agriculture to design, science and more!
