I just finished reading this wonderful book, given to me by a friend.
Chromophobia by David Batchelor.
It starts with a 'white bashing' and tries to understand how colour through history has been excluded in art, architecture and literature. It of course paints a bigger picture of how the fear of colour in all levels of life arose and continues to live on.
Such a great read :)
I could have taken numerous amounts of pages out of this book, so I have included the ripe reference list that contains another years worth of reading and viewing.
