A RAINBOW READER. {Title from cover.} Tessa Laird. Clouds, Auckland, 2013. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 160 pp. 22 x 14 cm. ISBN 9780987659378 In English.
Publisher's description: The design of this colorful book is intended as a perceptual experience as well as an organizational one. Auckland-based artist and writer Tessa Laird, a regular columnist for the New Zealand Listener, looks at color conceptually from her own personal perspective. Consisting of six chapters, one on each spectral hue, Laird's book uses color as a catalyst for speculative writing encompassing art history, literary criticism, personal anecdote, philosophy and anthropology. Each chapter is bound in the appropriately colored card; together, the sections form a rainbow spine and operate as a kind of edition-based artwork, a veritable rainbow on your bookshelf. Los Angeles-based writer Chris Kraus (Video Green) has described A Rainbow Reader as "meticulously researched, beautifully written, and intensely readable."
