Description - Colour by Marion Deuchars

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?

Award-winning illustrator Marion Deuchars takes us on a journey through colour, showing how its language is at the centre of how we think and feel about the world. Colour is everywhere. Through this book, we can see it afresh.

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
