    The giraffe one reminds me of Monet cut-outs.

    • i like the backpacks

      • eawesterhuis

        It also reminds me of that scene in Jurassic Park where they wake up in the tree and they see the Brachiosaur. Lex reaches out to pet the dino, but gets sneezed on.

      • haha yea it reminds me more of that than monet

  • jaycie

    ive always been a fan of these kind of bold illustrations. the color schemes are just great and if that’s supposed to be freddy krueger, right on!

    For pure speculative reason has this peculiarity, that, in choosing the various objects of thought, it is able to define the limits of its own faculties, and even to give a complete
    enumeration of the possible modes of proposing problems to itself, and
    thus to sketch out the entire system of metaphysics.

Book Giveaway: Chromaphilia by Stella Paul

Phaidon is releasing a new book all about colour and art. Written by author and art historian Stella Paul, Chromaphilia invites readers to consider the many ways that colour has been theorized and utilized to express meaning and emotion throughout different time-periods and cultures.

Each chapter of the book covers a specific colour (Red, Blue, Purple, Gold, Yellow, Green, White, Grey, and Black), and offers insight, artwork and anecdotes you probably didn’t know. Like how Yves Klein’s obsession with a particular shade of blue led him to develop his own customized (and patented) paint. Or how many crushed bugs it used to take to make the coveted red dye used for royal garments. (The answer is 70,000!)

Check out more images from Chromaphilia below or grab yourself a copy when it’s released on March 13th. We also have one to give away! To snag the book, simply post a link to any Booooooom article and write 1 sentence about the artist’s use of colour in the comment section below.

The winner will be selected in two weeks!
