THE COLOUR DICTIONARY: new dimensions in colour theory

Understanding the effect of colour, targeting colour in a focused way

Do you want to know how colours mirror words like “honest”, “likeable”, “tactless” or “endless”? Around 20,000 images illustrate the breadth and depth of colour associations with individual adjectives. 42 selected expressions are illustrated by expressive collages that demonstrate the effect of the colours associated with the expression when applied in practice. A large wall poster with an overview of all 42 expressions and their associated colours is included with “THE COLOUR DICTIONARY”.

Published by Callwey, the bilingual volume is a standard text in the fields of advertising, interior design, decoration and theory, and is an indispensable source of inspiration for trend consultants, designers, architects and craftsmen.

Colour and colour combinations have a different effect on everyone. What does my building contractor mean when he imagines a “tastefully” designed room or one with an “intimate” effect? What colour associations is he thinking of? The colour dictionary is an excellent “encyclopaedia” to compare language and colour associations with each other and to ensure that people are talking about the same colour mood.
