The Designer's Dictionary of Colour provides an in-depth look at thirty colours key to art and graphic design. Organised by spectrum, in colour-by-colour sections for easy navigation, this book documents each hue with charts showing colour range and palette variations. Chapters detail each colour's creative history and cultural associations, with examples of colour use that extend from the artistic to the utilitarian whether the turquoise on a Reid Miles album cover or the avocado paint job on a 1970s Dodge station wagon. A practical and inspirational resource for designers and students alike, The Designer's Dictionary of Colour opens up the world of colour for all those who seek to harness its incredible power.
