Smithsonian Magazine is featuring the work of an artist with a unique approach to classic novels: British artist Jaz Parkinson has tallied up all the mentions of color in a dozen works of literature, and rendered them in Rothko-esque bands of color. For example, here’s what Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland looks like (check out that White Rabbit stripe!)
Pretty great, right? Parkinson has done this for a dozen great works, including The Color Purple, The Great Gatsby, and Romeo and Juliet. Go to Smithsonian.com and check out all these “coloring books” for yourself!
