Here are hundreds of photographs, organized into color-coded chapters that revel in color's all-pervasive influence and accompanied by a text that explores color's symbolism and the emotions it generates. The international quest takes us to some of the planet's most exotic and far-flung places, from a workshop on the outskirts of Kyoto to a bustling market in a small town in Peru and on to a cochineal farm in the middle of the Mexican desert.

Colorful World is a vibrant celebration of human creativity that will be a source of inspiration and delight for designers and artists everywhere.
