Description: This double-sided book contains 12 separate individually-stitched booklets. Each booklet focuses on one colour, and describes scientific data, historical symbolism, associations and common phrases.
The books on one side are the primary and secondary colours – Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue and Purple. The books on the other side are Gold, Silver, Grey, Brown, White and Black. One cover has COLOUR written in pearlescent inks, and for the other cover I created a computer-generated image in Adobe Photoshop.
Displayed in my solo exhibition “Colourful Language” at Gallery 119 in 2004, and in Toowong Library in 2004-5.
