From 1933 to 1934 Sanzo Wada published a collection of color combinations that was the first of its kind in Japan. In 2010 Seigensha reprinted this classic as A Dictionary of Color Combinations, which was applauded by Die Zeit as a source of inspiration filled with a captivating array of “hues we didn’t even know existed.”
Now, following on that enduring bestseller, A Dictionary of Color Combinations Vol. 2 brings back two more works by Wada published in 1935–1936 and 1938, respectively. An indispensable reference for designers, fashion and interior specialists, illustrators, photographers, writers, and indeed anyone engaged in creative work.
