Summary
"Bleu mignon, fleur de coing, agriotte, langouste... Des couleurs surgies du passé, un trésor d'inspiration. Ce cahier bilingue français-anglais donne la parole aux échantillons de teinture d'Antoine Janot, maître-teinturier languedocien de la première moité du XVIIIe siècle, aux couleurs appréciées jusqu'aux confins de l'Orient. Après une brève présentation du teinturier et de son œuvre, ce cahier livre les clés des couleurs de 67 de se échantillons de fin drap de laine: nom et photo de chaque nuance, description du procédé permettant de l'obtenir et -- nouvel apport à l'histoire des noms de couleurs -- ses coordonnées colorimétriques das l'espace chromatique CIELAB. Il devient alors possible de vérifier l'exactitude des essais de reproduction de ces couleurs et de s'en inspirer pour concevoir les couleurs de demain." -- Description de l'éditeur
"Celestial blue, quince flower, sour cherry, lobster red... How can we not be inspired by these colour names from the past? This bilingual Workbook in English and French presents the colour gamut of Antoine Janot, a master-dyer from Languedoc in the of France during the 18th century whose colours were highly prized as far away as the Levant. After a brief introduction of the master-dyer and his work, the authors deliver the key elements defining the colours of 67 swatches of fine wool broadcloth: the name and photo of each shade; a schematic description of the process by which it has been obtained; and (in a new approach to the colour names in textiles) its chromatic specification in the CIELAB colour space. This makes it possible to assess the accuracy of attempts to reproduce these colours and use them as sources of inspiration for the future." -- Publisher's description
