Colour, based on nature
Color, based on nature
"This volume by Dutch graphic designer and book maker Irma Boom highlights UNESCO World Heritage sites across the globe via color diagrams derived from 80 natural locations designated by the UNESCO list. It is an exercise in describing without words, using instead colors to evoke and celebrate the essence of a place. Each page is folded and perforated, leaving readers to dismantle the pages as they go, revealing photographic documentation and further layers of detail."--from the publisher's website. Text by Francesco Bandarin. Text in English and some German. Book is housed within a box with striped tape.
