Color signatures for classic novels

May 6, 2013  |  Data Art

Jaz Parkinson made color signatures for classic novels. Basically, mentions of colors were tabulated and the results are shown as stacked bars, so it's fairly basic, but if you know the novels, these will mean something to you. For example, here are the signatures for Alice in Wonderland and Of Mice and Men.

Alice in Wonderland

Of Mice and Men
