If the fascinating study of color (covering all aspects) interests you, then, this impressively presented book on the subject should greatly appeal to your insatiable curiosity.

Containing lots of really great illustrations and educational text - "The Secret Language of Color" is one of the best books that I've seen on the subject in a mighty long time.

Red. Orange. Yellow. Green. Blue. Violet.

Can you even begin to imagine what this world would be like without color?

Like fire and water - I think that color is a basic need for all life on this planet.

Color is, literally, everywhere. And, I believe that the close study of color is truly fascinating from all aspects.

Impressively compiled by Joann and Arielle Eckstut -"The Secret Language of Color" is an intriguing and informative pictorial documentation of the science, nature, history, culture, and beauty of color.
