Colour is intrinsically linked to how individuals make sense of the world. It has the power to completely transform mood, often subliminally. It's capable of being energetic or restful, passive or aggressive, harmonious or dull, and that's just the beginning. Colour: A Journey explores the implications, history and cultural meanings of colour. With chapters on individual colours, their history and their influence, Colour will inspire you to make creative choices in your wardrobe, your home and your life. Lyrically written and thoughtfully illustrated with photography by Victoria Alexander, Colour is interspersed with poignant reminders on how to use colour to transform your mood and brighten your life.
