Ian Paterson is a successful commercial lawyer and author. He has pursued a lifelong interest in dictionaries and has an abiding pre-occupation with colour in its various applications.
"This is an extraordinary book... Everyone involved professionally with colour, in whatever way, will find this book not only intriguing, but of real practical benefit. But above all, there is just the sheer joy of discovery, the sensation of being propelled around a pin-ball machine from one new word or expression to another." Michael Peters, The Identica Partnership"
