I’ve read a few books about colour over the years. I find colour fascinating. The science, the art, the language.

I picked this one up from the gift shop outside the Olafur Eliasson exhibition in the Tate Modern. This book is beautiful. Each colour described has an edge printed with that colour. On its own this makes the book special. But the stories are fascinating as well. Short, often a couple of pages, discussion of the history of the colour all with references.

Easy to pick up and read a couple of colours.
