Synopsis

This beautiful box is brimming with gorgeous PANTONE colors and surprises. With a volume for each color of the rainbow—red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple—these six chunky board books feature simple peek-through cutouts that transform as you turn the pages. Simple text prompts parents and children to label objects and observe lighter and darker shades of the same color family, promoting a new way of noticing the colorful—and surprising—world around us.

Praise for Pantone: Box of Color
"Pleasingly tactile variations of six colors…"
The Wall Street Journal

"The books, which are smart and well-designed, showcase subtle shades of six colors (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple), while die-cuts do double duty as they introduce basic objects."
Publishers Weekly

I was left with more questions than answers by glimpses into the art world's changing relationship with colour, about how Edward Hopper used "rich, promising colours to depict silence and isolation" or why the Cubists rejected the decorative colours of the Fauves.
