"Chroma: A Book of Color" is a meditation on the color spectrum by Britain s most controversial filmmaker. From the explosions of image and color in "Edward II," "The Last of England," "The Garden," and "Wittgenstein," to the somber blacks of his collages and tar paintings, Derek Jarman has consistently used color in unprecedented ways. In his signature style, a lyrical combination of classic theory, anecdote and poetry, Jarman takes the reader through the spectrum, introducing each color as an embodiment of an emotion, evoking memories or dreams."
