Published one year after his death and predominantly written when he was dying from AIDS-related complications, this collection consists of nineteen essays on the seven primary colors along with gray, black, and white. Including quotes and musings on Da Vinci, Goethe, Morienus, Albers, and Wittgenstein, art and artists, and incorporating many fragments he wrote about his own life and films, this lyrically written compendium is the last work he produced. Dust jacket photo by film director and close friend of Jarman Howard Sooley. Embrowning to textblock; light rubbing to unclipped dust jacket. Near fine. Item #6415
