Color Scheme: An Irreverent History of Art and Pop Culture in Color Palettes
By (author): Edith Young 
Foreword by: Zachary Fine

Change the way you see colour forever in this dazzling collection of colour palettes spanning art history and pop culture, and told in writer and artist Edith Young's accessible, inviting style.

From the shades of pink in the blush of Madame de Pompadour's cheeks to Prince's concert costumes, Color Scheme decodes the often overlooked colour concepts that can be found in art history and visual culture. Edith Young's forty colour palettes and accompanying essays reveal the systems of colour that underpin everything we see, allowing original and, at times, even humorous themes to emerge. Color Scheme is the perfect book for anyone interested in learning more about, or rethinking, how we see the world around us.
