Publishers Weekly"Colors ignite your senses, so prepare for sensory overload," designer Adler warns in his foreword to National Geographic photographer Griffiths' curated collection of 245 photographs highlighting the power of color. He's not kidding. This collection shows how color is all around us, reminding readers of the beauty they pass by every day and are likely taking for granted. Yes, there are the standard city skylines, majestic wildlife, and golden sunsets, but there are also remarkable shots of mundane settings, helping readers appreciate the beauty in the dull blue of a rainy rail station, the crisp lines of frost on a window, and the silhouette of a bodybuilder against a bright blue sky. Grouping the images by color (including a handful of black-and-whites and vintage photographs from the National Geographic Society's archives in the mix), Griffiths keeps the focus on the hues rather than the artistry of the photographer, on color rather than composition. Though this approach may seem a little haphazard, it keeps the visual narrative on track, giving the book a unique vision and resulting in an experience readers will likely want to treat themselves to again and again.
