This is an extraordinary book. I found my initial feelings of scepticism turning the full 360° through interest, enjoyment and finally total absorption... The book is a unique resource for exploring every aspect of colour and its applications across virtually all human activity through the ages... Everyone involved professionally with colour, in whatever way, will find this book not only intriguing but of real practical benefit... But above all, there is just the sheer joy of discovery, the sensation of being propelled around a pin-ball machine from one new word or expression to anothe.

I am simply astonished! The Dictionary of Colour is astounding. I started thinking why would one want this? Then ended up deep in the origins of turquoise, the fact that homage means blue, maddening conundrums like the hat problem, and so on. I have now wasted happy hours and am going to stop!
