• There is not a single moment of our day or aspect of our existence that is not influenced by color. From science (the electromagnetic spectrum, quantum mechanics and light absorption, light scattering, how humans see color and how vision evolved, and color blindness) to nature (the sky, rainbows, minerals and gems, animal pigmentation, and how animals use color to find food and mates or to protect themselves) to culture (color as a signifier, color and navigation, religion and ritual, design, and personal identity).•The Secret Language of Color is the most thorough investigation into the role of color in every aspect of life on our planet.•Organized by chapters including The Physics and Chemistry of Color; The Universe; Flora; Animals; Humans; and Culture, which are interspersed with additional chapters that that focus on each hue in the spectrum individually including Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, and Violet.•The design is both beautiful and informative, and includes dozens of visual exercises that clearly demonstrate some amazing principals of the science of color.
