Sumptuous. this is a book that'll make you look at colours in a whole new light (Big Issue)
Fascinating and original, everything you never knew about colour
Top customer reviews
What there is are descriptions in plain English, in black text, in plain block form. Plus references to other pages in the book where the same phrase is explained, underlined in a colour. About the only substantial colour are the two page spreads that begin each chapter - each a colour, of course. They list all the anecdotes you're about to read over a timeline. Not very useful or inspired. Occasionally there is a page dedicated to a quote, and the quote is on a colour background, with maybe a simple, stock, one colour image like a raindrop or a pail.
There are far better books that cover the same territory, only infinitely more innovatively. They are far more engaging, far better laid out, and much more useful than this one. The surprise here is how disappointing it is. Design is all but absent.

Altogether, there is maybe about ten pages of actual substance or worth in the entire book. The rest is just filler, which is a huge disappointment.
