What People are Saying About This
“A tour de force . . . Color Codes is in a class by itself.”
“In his wonderful book, Charles Riley makes color more graspable, more at hand than ever before. At the same time he enhances, indeed, seems to fuel our appreciation of the excitement of color.”
“A captivating book. Rich in information and graceful in its prose, I know of no other book on the subject with this kind of encyclopedic breadth. The vast amount of detail is handled with an ease that belies the years of research that must have gone into this project.”
