Robert Jay Wolff 1968 Seeing Red, Feeling Blue, Hello Yellow! - Mid-Century Color Theory Books for Children

Straight outta 1968, here are some nifty color theory books intended for children, created by art professor and Brooklyn modernist Robert Jay Wolff. These are just some of the personality pages; there's also quite a bit in these volumes about how different colors work with or against each other, the color wheel, and so on. The official titles are Seeing Red, Feeling Blue and Hello Yellow!, and they were published in 1968, in the aforelisted order, by Charles Scribner's Sons in New York. Retail price was $3.50 for clothbound hardback with dustjacket.
