Based on the premise that colour is a defining force in our world, this volume explores how colour shapes the way we understand everything around us. Its pages explore the long history of colours as well, tracing the roots of their symbolism and also assessing their changing importance and significance over time. Far from an academic analysis of colour theory, this book considers the myriad lenses by which colours enter our world.
