Description: The Colour of Books is the newest addition to the Colour Wheel range from Dorothy and is a beautifully stylised fan depicting the spins of 300 books that mention a colour in their title.
The print includes literary classics such as: David Copperfield (Dickens), Black Beauty (Anna Sewell), The Scarlet Pimpernel (Baroness Emmuska Orczy), Anne of Green Gables (LM Montgomery) The Picture of Dorian Gray (Oscar Wilde), The Grapes of Wrath (Steinbeck), Cider with Rosie (Laurie Lee), Jame & the Giant Peach (Roald Dahl), A Clockwork Organge (Anthony Burgess), The Colour Purple (Alice Walker) and Blood Meridian (Cormac McCarthy).
Dorothy have included some personal favourites from their own bookshelves including The Raven (Edgar Allan Poe), The Yellow Wall-Paper (Charlotte Perkins Gilman), Midnight's Children (Salman Rushdie), The Black Dahila (James Ellroy), White Teeth (Zadie Smith), The Goldfinch (Donna Tart) and the 2015 Man Booker Prize nominee A Spool of Blue Thread (Anne Tyler). You'll also find Fifty Shades Of Grey (E.L. James) on the wheel although no one in the studio is actually admitting to having read it.
There's an A-Z key at the base of the print listing all 300 featured books, their authors and the year they were published.
