A Dictionary of Color Combinations
This book presents a collection of 348 color combinations originated by Sanzo Wada (1883-1967) who—during the early Showa era, a time of increasingly avant-garde and diversified use of color—was quick to focus on the importance of color and laid the foundation for contemporary color research.
The book not only presents color combinations that are an important record from the Taisho and Showa periods; readers may also perceive a universal sensitivity towards color that can be applied in daily life today.
