The colour, light and contrast manual

University of Reading

Publication date: 2010
Ranking: useful

The content of this book is drawn from the extensive work of the Inclusive Environments Research Group in SCME and provides the standard text on the provision of inclusive environments.

The book concentrates on the needs of people who are visually impaired, as the research has shown that where colour and lighting meets their needs it will also meet those of all other building users. The book brings together an extensive range of research-based guidance for those designing and operating buildings. Detailed descriptions of the nature and measurement of colour introduce the recently agreed national Standard for contrast measurement, BS8493: 2008, developed by the same author.
