A Dictionary of Colour Combinations by Sanzo Wada

Regular price £17.50

This beautiful pocket-sized book from Seigensha Publishing reveals almost 350 colour combinations created by artist, teacher, costume and kimono designer Sanzo Wada (1883-1967).  Wada helped to lay the foundations for contemporary colour research in the turbulent Showa period between the wars, and his original book was published in 6 volumes (1933-1934). As the English translation says 'This book not only present colour combinations that are an important record from the Taisho and Showa periods; readers may also perceive a universal sensitivity toward colour that can be applied in daily life today.'
