colourful versus black and white

yesterday was my free day and i went to the book store as i wanted to see if they had something interesting on the theory of colours. the idea was always going to be a good one, but i never got that far. i picked up this book Audrey In Rome and was smitten. i usually never buy what is categorized as "coffeetable-book" but i didn't resist this one.

seems i didn't feel so studious anymore so instead of looking at books with actual text i reached for this large colour card and bought it as well. it will be very useful! not joking, since these are the exact colour shades (RAL) that are available for the mobile line i sell in the shop. more on that later.
