Republishing of the visual artist, Kasper Heiberg's book, The European Palette. The book, which was first published in 1972, is a result of Heiberg's research into color at the Academy of Fine Arts. However, Kasper Heiberg (1928-1984) did not write a work about theoretical color theory, but based on a fascination with the language and world of colors, based on studies of both historical sources and Heiberg's own contemporaries.
In addition to palettes taken from painting and architecture, Heiberg examines, for example, the palette of house sparrows, storks, cars and nail polish.
The reissue of The European Palette also contains two newly written texts by art historian Kira Kofoed and literary lecturer and critic Lilian Munk Rösing.
