Chroma: A Book Of Colour

  • £9.99
A poetic, passionate and intensely personal exploration of colour written during the final year of Derek Jarman's life - with a new introduction by Ali Smith. In Chroma, his most poetic and lyrical book, Derek Jarman explores the uses of colour. Shifting across the spectrum and from the medieval to the modern, he draws on the work of great colour theorists from Pliny to Leonardo. Interwoven with these musings are evocative memories from Jarman's childhood and illustrious career, along with reflections on his deteriorating health. Written a year before Jarman's death, this is an intensely personal work.
