A Thesaurus for Color Names

This newly released book should help us describe colors clearly.

It’s “lilac”, not light purple. Just like it’s “magenta”, not dark pink. Writer and children’s book illustrator Ingrid Sundberg has created a Color Thesaurus – a collection of 12 color charts that list the correct names of all shades. It’s a useful reference tool for artists, designers, firms, make-up professionals and anyone who’s planning to get their house painted :). Check them out below.

  1. Items in each of these are new to me...like anchor for example, or umber. Very interesting color squares, Barb.
