A stunning and unforgettable black book ... about colour.
Our eyes tell us about colour. But what if you are blind? Can you still know colours? Using simple language and beautiful textured art, this book shows you how to 'see' without your eyes. From out of the blackness, a beautiful rainbow of colours emerges!
