Our world is not just red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo or violet - the seven colors of the rainbow show only a fraction of our color spectrum. 133 shades of color from nature and human civilization make up the spectrum of this book: each color is printed across the entire surface of the right-hand page. On the left is an illustration of a plant, an animal or an object from our everyday life that corresponds in terms of color and content. We all know cardinal red, crimson or saffron yellow, but who knows why flamingos are pink or why the moon is white? The text below the illustration explains in a very catchy and poetic way why the colors are called that way and what connects them with the pictures.
