This project seeks to create a visual representation of Werner's Nomenclature of Colors, a book that proposes a system for classifying colors by drawing inspiration from the natural world. The goal is to visually demonstrate the connections between different hues and showcase their presence in nature. By doing so, the project aims to expand the potential for studying and comprehending the rich content of this book.

I found inspiration through exploring the digital recreation of the manuscript and it’s compilation into a dataset by data artist Nicholas Rougeux.
