This book is a collection of 348 color combinations originated by Sanzo Wada(1883-1967) who,in that time of increasingly avant-grade and diversified use of color,was quick to focus on the importance of color and laid the foundation for contemporary color research. Sanzo Wada was active as an artist,art school instructor,costume designer for the movies and the theater, and kimono and fashion designer who employed his extensive and versatile talents to do innovative work that centered primarily on visual perception and form.

 

Sanzo Wada (1883–1967)’s interest in the importance of color prompted him to found the Japan Standard Color Association (present-day Japan Color Research Institute) in 1927. Active not only as a color researcher but also as an artist, fashion designer, and stage and film art director, he received the 1954 Academy Award for Best Costume Design for Gate of Hell and was recognized as a Person of Cultural Merit by the Japanese government in 1958.

This book is a wonderful little repository of nice colour combinations, I find myself coming back to it for inspiration frequently and it's small enough to fit in my bag without much hassle if I want to take it along with me to work or for drawing outside.
