Colourstories - colour in picture book narrative

Snowman

Wild Things
Caterpillar

Here's three brand new colour trend timelines that I'm releasing as limited editions of 50, printed on Somerset Velvet 225gsm fine art paper using archival UV inkjet inks. 

They're a tribute to three classic children's books - The Snowman, Where the Wild Things Are and The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Using custom software, I've reduced each page in all three books to it's main five colours proportionally according to size, then arranged each resulting chart in sequence. 

As well as the dramatic difference in each illustrator's palette, narrative information such as day and night times are revealed - if you look closely you can even tell what kind of fruits the Caterpillar ate for breakfast. 

Free worldwide postage.
