Color Graphs Of Classic Novels, Based On Colors Mentioned In Each Story
By Anthea Quay, 17 May 2013
UK-based artist Jaz Parkinson creates posters of classic novels based on the colors mentioned within the story.
In his ongoing ‘Color Signatures’ series, he creates “graphs of all the visual content in the books” of well-known works such as Romeo & Juliet, Alice’s Adventure in Wonderland, and The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
“For example, when it might say ‘yellow brick road’, ‘yellow’ gets a tally; or when for example in The Road it says ‘dark ash covered everything’ (not an actual quote), that image evokes dark grey instantly in the mind, so dark grey gets a tally,” he explains how he gets these spectrums of color.
The results are surprising—who would’ve thought there was that much color within pages of words.
