Colour




Experience colour afresh by seeing how colours work - together, apart - in this playful, rich, exhilarating book

Marion Deuchars brings her trademark illustrative style to a subject that lies at the centre of how so many artists, illustrators, designers - of all abilities - think and code the world: the subject of colour. What makes a colour work? What do colours mean to artists or cultures? Why does grey make a colour stand out? What colour are the oceans? Why is the yellow of lemons something to treasure? Each page different from the last, Colour is a riotous, extraordinary book - one to return to again and again
