Review:

"This charming book is back in print after 40 years and it remains a beautiful evocation of the freedom in being an artist."―Creative Review

Synopsis:

What colour is your world? If you lie in the grass, the world is green, turn over, look at the sky; it's blue. If you ask a gardener, he will tell you his world is green, while the bricklayer's world is red and the stargazer's world is black. But suppose you ask an artist - he will tell you that colours keep changing. In the artist's world, the sky may be yellow, the ocean orange, and cabbages blue.This book is designed to help you wonder about colour in a new way. Look around and think again. What colour is your world? Bob Gill has said that from the age of six or seven, he knew he wanted to be a freelance graphic designer, and the striking illustrations in this book , which cover a playful variety of styles, are clearly the work of a man who loves colour and line. There are colonels on horseback and kings in all their purple regalia, as well as simple bottles of milk and bold walls of bricks, accompanied by clear, engaging text that is perfect for reading aloud.Bob Gill is the author of many books on graphic design, including "LogoMania" (2006), "Unspecial Effects for Graphic Designers" (2001) and the classic "Forget all the rules you ever learned about graphic design.

Including the ones in this book" (1983). In the 1960s, he also published a number of charming, quirky illustrated books for children, including "What colour is your world?", which have been unavailable for a number of years.
