Green with envy. Feeling blue. White lies. Grey areas. In every language spoken on earth human beings use colors to express themselves. World renowned author, Vladimir Nabokov*, claimed he could hear color and actually assigned a color to each letter of the alphabet based on each letter's particular sound. The Eskimos of the polar regions have countless words that uniquely describe the color white.
In the world of graphics some designers have devoted their entire body of work to one color, sometimes showing it off in all of its full-bodied glory, sometimes stripping it back to its barest essentials.

This book offers a depth of understanding of individual colors that is unprecedented.
