A rainbow in a book

Why is the sky blue? Where do babies come from? Can you fit all the colours in the world in one book?

All questions which an annoying three year old would ask. We all know the answers – because it reflects the sea/from the same place you came from/yes Tauba Auerbach has done just that.

Auerbach’s ‘RGB Colorspace Atlas‘ is a book which contains every single shade of RGB colour possible. This 8 x 8 x 8 inches book is the rainbow you can hold in your hand. Its a brilliantly simple idea, stunning to look at and actually vaguely practical.

Although I can’t imagine anything worse for the indecisive paint picker.
