About the Book
We take red, blue, and yellow as a given.
All three are, after all, The Primary Colors.
They should be equal, but they aren't.
The problems relating to Yellow are not
confined to pigments, but word associations, too.
"Take that you yellow-bellied coward!"
This book celebrates what is special about this hue,
this happy sunshiny color.
