Review quote

The colours of the rainbow seem so simple, but their endless combinations give us a stunningly beautiful world. And the best thing is that colours only get better as you look more closely. This is a topic for everyone to enjoy, from the youngest to the oldest, and this book gives a wonderful introduction to how it all works. -- Dr Helen Czerski
