Sorry for the hiatus all, sometimes life, you know!! Here is our book for today, recommended by the wonderful MUA Alex DeSoto. (it is her words on the picture). We can sometimes get bogged down in the minutiae of our day to day in our field, and kind of forget what is at the core of what we do- Art and Color. A great resource book for just that. Full disclosure- I didn't write this next description- comes from Amazon, but I thought it explained it beautifully.
"Sanzo Wada (1883-1967) was an artist, teacher, costume and kimono designer during a turbulent time in avant-garde Japanese art and cinema. Wada was ahead of his time in developing traditional and Western influenced colour combinations, helping to lay the foundations for contemporary colour research. Based on his original 6-volume work from the 1930s, this book offers 348 color combinations, as attractive and sensuous as the books own design."
This is more than a book, it is an art piece. An essential add to one's collection!!
