Expert colourist Teruko Sakurai takes you to the end of the rainbow — and beyond — in this inspiring colour dictionary!

Over 2,750 traditional Japanese colour combinations are presented, organised into 100 different themes associated with the seasons, landscapes and artistic heritage of Japan. Whether it's a shower of pink cherry blossoms, the flutter of a carp flap or the austere and cool tones of Mt. Fuji, flipping the pages of this colour dictionary is like taking a stroll through the sensual delights of Japanese culture in all its dazzling tones, hues and palettes.
Each two-page section in this richly-illustrated book presents a different theme with the following information:

  • An introduction to the colour scheme and a description of how it can be used

  • A number-coded nine-colour palette board showing the range of shades and hues that complement and comprise the scheme

  • CMYK, RGB and HEX (the colour code used in Japan) references for all nine colours

  • 26 examples including two and three colour combinations with photos and illustrations

This is an indispensable guide for graphic designers, illustrators, decorators, artists and publishing professionals. It will also be enjoyable and inspiring for readers planning their own home design or art projects.
