Pantone: Colours introduces children to the ten basic colours and twenty shades of each. Every spread features a colour heading, a monochromatic image and a variety of gridded shades and tints of the same colour. Younger children will enjoy naming the colours of the high-contrast recognisable objects. Slightly older children will peruse the shades to choose favourites; immersing themselves in the concept that one colour name actually refers to a variety of dark, light and in-between tones.
Pantone revolutionised the graphic arts industry with the launch of the Pantone Matching System in 1 963, which enabled designers and printers to articulate and reproduce accurate colour anywhere in the world. This system achieved global acceptance and quickly became the standard in colour naming and matching. Today, Pantone serves not only as the premier colour consultant and authority in trends, but as a consumer brand in apparel, homeware, accessories, arts and crafts, stationary and office, home furnishings and electronics product lines.
