Bogushevskaya, Victoria and Elisabetta Colla, eds. Thinking Colours: Perception, Translation and Representation. Newcastle: Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2015. ISBN 978-1-4438-7529-5.

The editors state that ‘The place where science meets the humanities is cognitive culture studies ... and this is where our book begins ...’ 1 . The outcome of a gathering of scholars and artists in Lisbon, the book offers very different approaches to colour, each following a theme and offering a bibliography. The contributions range from state-of-the-art disputes about theoretical aspects to the use of colour in modern literature and advertising. The editors have created a sequence classifying the various contributions under headings related to ‘Cognition,’ ‘Language and Translation,’ ‘Literature,’ ‘Art,’ and ‘Space’. This review uses a different system.
