I'm a newbie at design. I'm a front-end developer mostly working at tech issues rather than business or design. I really want to get some useful knowledge in this field to help my team to build better software. So, what i really want to get first is some books about color theory and how to choose an appropriate color theme for UI. It would be awesome if you can provide me the book where i can find not only the rules about building and mixing colors, but explaining as well, why these colors are more suitable for people's perception etc.
Thanks a lot.
P.S. To anticipate "on hold" status due to "recommendation question" i'd like to tell you that i'm not talking about subjective recommendation/opinion, but core color theory books that might exist and must have to be read by anyone who wants to deep into this. Thanks.
