“Buy this book for yourself, but don't open it until mid-winter, in a cabin deep in the woods surrounded by ghost-white snow after you have lit a mid-afternoon fire; only then should you flip to a random page and land your finger, as you might on a globe to find your dream destination, on one of the book’s colour chips. Say two-thirds of the way down the grid of greys on page 29, which reads, ‘#16 blackish grey/back of Nut-Hatch/Old Stems of Hawthorn/Flint.’ Now imagine you are Charles Darwin on your way back from the Galapagos trying to explain the particular background colour of a speckled egg you found on the cliffs. This book will basically make you into a poet.”
