In short, it is a powerful shorthand for conveying ideas and information. Words are drawn from many different worlds including art, artists, crafts and design, painting, printing and sculpture, the decorative arts, gems, fashion, textiles and clothing, cosmetics, hair and complexion, physics, maths, astronomy, and many others. This is a book for reference and for entertainment, for the professional and academic as well as the word-lover. It will prove valuable for writers, journalists and copywriters, graphic, textile and fashion designers, artists and illustrators, art students, art critics, decorators, architects, set designers, colourists and dye-makers, colour scientists, paint manufacturers, product designers and originators, marketers -in short, a book to delight and intrigue lovers of colour and language everywhere.
