2.2 Reading List

For this module I have to create a reading list.

I have collated all of my books relating to colour and have listed them below. Some of these books will drop off and others will come on, but these are all now on my radar to dip in and out of. This list seem massive, but in reality not the whole book is of interest in many cases.
