Sanzo Wada 1883-1967 was an artist, teacher, costume and kimono designer during a turbulent time in avant-garde Japanese art and cinema. Wada was ahead of his time in developing traditional and Western influenced colour combinations, helping to lay the foundations for contemporary colour research.

Based on his original 6-volume work from the 1930s, this book offers 348 colour combinations, each with matching poetic names and CMYK codes. It is a classic for anyone fascinated by or working with colour.
