Colour studies attracts an increasingly wide range of scholars from across the academic world. Contributions to the present volume offer a broad perspective on the field, ranging from studies of individual languages through papers on art, architecture and heraldry to psychological examinations of aspects of colour categorization, perception and preference. The chapters have been developed from papers and posters presented at a conference on Progress in Colour Studies (PICS08) held at the University of Glasgow. The volume both updates research reported at the earlier PICS04 conference (published by Benjamins in 2006 as Progress in Colour Studies volumes 1 and 2), and introduces new and exciting topics and developments in colour research. In order to make the articles maximally accessible to a multidisciplinary readership, each of the six sections following the initial theoretical papers begins with a short preface describing and drawing together the themes of the chapters within that section. There are seventeen colour illustrations.

A short note on visual balance judgements as a tool for colour appearance matching
Lucia R. Ronchi
“An excellent balance has been struck between high quality scholarship and accessibility, and as a result the book would be of use to beginners and experts from across a whole range of disciplines. Though the reader may approach this book with only a handful of articles in mind, which relate directly to area of research, if they delve a little deeper, they will find topics which can illuminate new approaches and methodologies which they may not have previously considered. And therein lies the success of New Directions in Colour Studies: though spanning an exceptionally wide range of topics, it does so in true interdisciplinary spirit.”
