John Dilnot: Map 2004 image

Year: 2004

Printmaker and book artist John Dilnot has arranged the evocatively-named colours from paint manufacturers’ colour charts into a map of Britain, loosely configured around the real places after which the colours are named. Each map comes with a postcard printed with one of the colours; in this case a soft summery green called ‘Wimbledon’.
