Recommended book on colour


I think that understanding colour is important to get progress in photography (FIXME). I did search on internet with no success. What's book on this topic that you would recommend?

Thank you!

PS: I am sorry for my bad English.

It's not necessarily just about colour, there are other elements that make a great photo. Like the Elements of Visual Design.

There is a link to a web site that has a lot of Photographic Composition Articles, including one on Colour Theory

Well, this isn't a book, but I highly recommend the information on this website: Tutorials on Color Management & Printing The 10 articles on their color management section pertain specifically to photography. In particular the articles on color perception and color management, and you may also want to read the article on Understanding Dynamic Range in Digital Photography
