Colors are key to the Chinese art of feng shui ("fung away"), a system of placement whose simplicity and ecological good sense have struck such a chord recently in the West. Now Lin Yun and Sarah Rossbach, well known for their introduction to the West of feng shui, have written a fully illustrated guide to color application in all areas of life: home, garden, clothes, food, environment, health, and fortune-telling. In "Living Color" readers will find not only answers to the most common color questions - what color to pick for the new sofa? what color to wear on a job interview or to clinch an important deal? what colors for romance? - but also rules for a balanced and harmonious life based upon no less an authority than Tao - the way of all living things.

Publishers Weekly, 1994-08-29 ``How does color influence our life-world?... color defines for us what exists and what does not... discloses the status of one's health and fortunes... inspires emotion... [and] structures our behavior.'' The authors, past collaborators on Interior Design with Feng Shui, here explain Chinese spiritual teacher Lin Yun's theory of color, based in part on Buddhist tradition, and its broad applications. Color is here considered as a means of beneficial power and as a potential cure; given knowledge, wise planning and a certain sensitivity in the consumer, it can be used to improve lives. The book explores the philosophical and historical background of color theory, then moves on to make many practical, concrete suggestions about how to best use color at home indoors and in the landscape beyond; ``color cures'' for personal unhappiness; the use of color in food; and even ``using the Chinese zodiac to select car colors.'' Some readers will balk at the seemingly fanciful cast of specific recommendations, but the volume as a whole is stimulating, speculative, and arrestingly ``different.'' (Oct.)
