Color Scheme: An Irreverent History of Art and Pop Culture in Color Palettes

Author: Edith Young

From the shades of pink in the blush of Madame de Pompadour's cheeks to Prince's concert costumes, Color Scheme decodes the often overlooked color concepts that can be found in art history and visual culture. Edith Young's forty color palettes and accompanying essays reveal the systems of color that underpin everything we see, allowing original and, at times, even humorous themes to emerge. Color Scheme is the perfect book for anyone interested in learning more about, or rethinking, how we see the world around us.Abigail Booth is the London-based cofounder of the studio collective Forest + Found. Working across textiles, drawing, and painting, she exhibits her art throughout the world.

Edith Young is an artist, designer, and writer who lives in New York City. She is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, and Color Scheme is her first book.
