Just published in October, 2020, Why is the Sky Blue? Colorful Questions and Answers by Frank J. D'Agostino.
“Why is the Sky Blue? Colorful Questions and Answers” is a sort of “Hues Hue” reference about colors. Have you ever wondered why brides wear white, but raincoats are yellow? Find answers to colorful questions such as: What color is the ocean? What do chauffeurs, clerics, judges, magicians, and pirates, have in common? What color was the first piece of bubblegum? Are goldfish naturally orange?
Subjects include astronomy and planets, "colormarking" brand colors, farming, flags, food, hair and eyes, mammals and fish, the martial arts, plants, fruits and vegetables, reptiles and chameleons, ribbons, sports, tapes, transportation, weather, and wires.
While the book is about colors…it contains no images, color or black and white.
