This book that highlights several aspects of colour is literally a work on the world of colours. Our world view is a result of the objects - living and non-living - as well as the space containing them. Any object we see presents itself in its characteristic shape, size and colour. It is difficult to think of an object without colour. In this work, the author Dr. N. S. Leela has taken pains to delineate the qualities of colour, its role in our daily life and its all pervading nature. Colour is invariably connected with light. Starting with beautiful references to our sun, the giver of light to all the earthlings, the author analyses the process of vision the role of the eye as an instrument and brain as a detector of the sensation and the path breaking researches leading to our greater understanding of the phenomenon. The perception of colour is influenced by the intrinsic nature of the object, the light incident unit, the background of the object and the position of the observer. These are explained by illustrating the cases of the ocean, sky, trees, leaves, flowers, auroras, butterflies, blood and several other things. The role of colours in decoration and festivals, the effect of climatic changes on the colours of objects and the colour indications in good health and illness are also touched upon. In short here is a well illustrated work on everything about colour.
