Although we experience colour all the time, do we really understand colour? Three hundred years ago Isaac Newton showed that white light is composed of all the colours of the spectrum yet does this provide us with insight into our own personal experience of colour sensation? To answer such questions on the nature of colour this volume gathers the combined knowledge of physics, biology, history and art. It provides an exciting exploration of colour, from the diverse perspectives of experts in eight different fields of study. Their essays take us on a journey both through the sciences and the world of fine art, and they combine to give a full and rewarding view of colour.

Farbe ist Empfindung, der Farbeindruck entsteht im Kopf. Dieser Eindruck, den unser Auge zusammen mit dem Gehirn erzeugt, ist so perfekt, dass viele gleuben, Farbe sei eine Eigenschaft von Oberflachen. Das Buch klart diesen Irrtum auf. Der Mensch versucht schon seit Jahrhunderten die Farbwahrnehmungen in Farbsystemen zu ordnen. Das Buch Buch gibt einen Uberblick uber diese Farbsysteme und stellt ein neues System vor, das auf der Farbsattigung beruht. Fur die Farbsattigung hat die Autorin eine grundlegende Formel gefunden."

Color is one of the most significant cues used by consumers to determine the quality of a food. While color is usually assumed to be a property of the food itself, it is actually the individual's response to the visual signals generated by light on the product. An authoritative reference can best explain the ways that food color and quality are assessed and how they can be improved to benefit consumers and the food industry. This book reviews how color is perceived and measured, discusses food color chemistry and stability, and presents ways that color can be better controlled in food. Part one introduces the concept of the total appearance of food and examines the principles of instrumental color measurement, models of color appearance, color measurement by color reflectance, and sorting by color. Part two covers color control in food, focusing on the chemistry of food colorants, color stability, genetic modification for color enhancement, and developments in natural colorings.

Part travelogue, part narrative history, Colour unlocks the history of the colours of the rainbow, and reveals how paints came to be invented, discovered, traded and used. This remarkable book remembers a time when red paint was really the colour of blood, when orange was the poison pigment, blue as expensive as gold, and yellow made from the urine of cows force-fed with mangoes. It looks at how green was carried by yaks along the silk road, and how an entire nation was founded on the colour purple. Exciting, richly informative and always surprising, Colour lifts the lid on the historical palette and unearths an astonishing wealth of stories about the quest for colours, and our efforts to understand them.

Colour is one of the few remaining uncharted territories of film studies, and its centrality to the construction and reception of film narratives has only recently been recognised. After a century of widespread critical and theoretical neglect, colour is now poised to become a prime focus within film studies at all levels, and this book will constitute a key voice within this debate. In a series of wide-ranging critical essays, marked by authoritative and innovative perspectives, the volume explores the shifting technologies, theories, and practices of colour in cinema, highlighting the intricate relationship between technological, philosophical, and artistic concerns, and making a compelling case for colour as a dominant and complex signifier in filmic discourse. The essays are divided into three main sections exploring the historical and technical dimensions of colour, the aesthetics of colour, and the significance of colour in relation to broader issues of race, gender, and identity, and are interdisciplinary and transnational in their focus. They provide the reader with a clear understanding of the significance of colour, exploring new pathways and identifying discoveries still to be made.

Along with its companion volume, this book offers a fascinating glimpse into the current avenues of research into colour, a phenomenon which daily affects all our lives in often surprising ways. The majority of the papers originated in a 2004 conference entitled 'Progress in Colour Studies' which was held in the University of Glasgow, U.K. The contributions to this first volume, which is principally linguistic and anthropological in content, and to its companion on the psychological aspects of colour, present either summaries of state-of-the-art colour research in various disciplines, or in-depth accounts of certain aspects of such work. This volume includes approaches such as Natural Semantic Metalanguage, social network analysis, quantitative analysis, type modification, vantage theory, the centrality of social norms of inference, place-names and heraldry. In the process, new insights are offered into the following languages: English, French, Portuguese, Sorbian, Burarra, Cape Breton Gaelic, Tzotzil, and others.

"The nature of colour should change -no longer just a thin layer of change, but something that genuinely alters perception" -this stipulation of Rem Koolhaas is echoes by the world famous architects and designers Alessandro Mendini and Norman Foster. In this volume, they present between them a total of 90 colours -each covering half a page -accompanied by comments on the background, the significance and the applications of the colours. Studies of colours from each office form the basis of this book, and were previously only available in extravagant individual editions. With this comprehensive and consistent presentation of the varying approaches to colour, we have a compendium which shows the wide use of colour in today's technologically advanced architecture with its modern, post-modern and deconstructive orientation. The range of examples of the colours in practice includes load-bearing structures, facades, interior design, furnishing and the entire specturm of product design.
