A project produced for my MA Graphic Design Book Arts Elective, using colour to interpret the story of Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. The influence of research I had done into the semiotics of paint colour names lead to the development of a secondary output for the project, in addition to the case bound book created in response to the brief. Taking inspiration from Farrow & Ball’s unusual paint colour names, I created a chart using similar visual language to a paint sample book. Interpreting characters, events and objects from the story as colours from the Farrow & Ball paint chart, added a new layer of meaning on to the colour by re-naming it and anchoring it to a new text. As with the book the colours were presented in the order they appear in the narrative, while the back of the chart includes a synopsis of the story.
