Pure Colour Book

2. Pure Colour

Stylist Jane Cumberbatch’s latest book is a vivid scrapbook of colour. Like flicking through a sketchbook of observations, inspirations and imagery, this joyful title is divided into blues, greens, white, yellows, pinks and naturals, inviting you to look around more closely at the everyday things in life. It shows how you might get inspiration from a painted café table or a beautiful ribbed shell.
