The Black Book of Colors

by Menena Cottin and Rosana Faria

I apologize that the book cover is so hard to see, especially on this background.

What an amazing concept! This book is brilliant and beautiful!

The entire book is black (white words) and describes colors using senses other than sight. Each page repeats the printed lettering in braille. There are also raised "pictures" of the objects associated with the color. The concept is a bit difficult to describe and must be experienced to be fully appreciated.

The Black Book of Colors helps us focus on Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, then to Be Understood. We gain a bit of understanding of how some people experience the world, and also see a way to help them understand our view of part of the world.
