These books are a personal ongoing source of study and inspiration; since I buy lots of them, I'll keep posting new titles and personal reviews here when possible. 

All books are listed in casual order.

Book I love n.4


This is an absolute must have for a comics colorist! The whole meaning and complete workflow of the art of coloring from technical set up to color aesthetic and storytelling choices is masterfully explained and illustrated; plus an entire section is about how to do an effective lettering with samples and step by step. I was already working in comics when I approached this book and it really made a difference in my way of thinking about storytelling with color. Still a favorite of mine on the subject.
