Many people want to learn the basics about color blindness, the genetics, the different types of color vision deficiency, how it is to live with it, if there is anything available to help colorblind people or if you can cure it. Based on this I put together a series on Color Blind Essentials, which includes six parts and covers the most popular topics in this field.
This series is now also available as a free eBook on Color Blind Essentials! Free for everybody interested in the topic to download it, print it out, read it and even spread it—as you like.
I really hope you enjoy this little book. On 28 pages I tried to put together the basic topics on color vision deficiency. I also tried to cover the most often asked questions and to give some insights on what it is like to be colorblind. And of course I also included some facts & figures and some pictures simulating color blindness.
Laura Evans created a nice and short documentary film to show what it’s like to be colorblind. While interviewing a colorblind artist she gives us a nice overview of how it feels, some thoughts on what the term color means and how important colors really are if you are suffering from color blindness. “No such thing as color” includes some nice details to give you an insight on how it might feel to be colorblind.
There is only one thing which I don’t really understand: She starts with letting the guy name the coloring of some houses in the neighbourhood. For me as a strongly red-blind person the guy in the film does a perfect job on this task…. but watch yourself :-)
