The Colourful Book took two years to write and design. It is all about colour theory, pigment composition and how they behave differently within different skin types. The second half of the book is a pigment dictionary that describes the carbon levels, opacity levels, temperature, the value and a general description of each pigment. Each swatch has been handmade and scanned into the book and has a list of its CI numbers assigned to it.
