Reviews

'A book that proves valuable for collectors and color obsessives.' - Introspective

'Bright and luminous.' - Remodelista

'Exquisitely packaged.' - Aspire Design & Home

'What struck me first about Rossella Mennegazzo's book was it's Japanese style binding ... Its pages continued to impress with texture and content. This beautiful book explores 200 colors (iro), with each traditional Japanese hue represented by one or more noteworthy items. Everything from modern furniture to utensils and kimonos are included in the carefully curated collection that you have to see in person for the utmost appreciation.' - Kelly Beall, Design Milk
