Classic picture books as color wheels

Arthur Buxton writes, "Here's a tribute to three classic children's books - The Snowman, Where the Wild Things Are and The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Using custom software, I've reduced each page in all three books to its main five colours proportionally according to size, then arranged each resulting chart in sequence."

As well as the dramatic difference in each illustrator's palette narrative information such as day and night times are revealed - if you look closely you can even tell what kind of fruits the Caterpillar ate for breakfast.

(Thanks, Arthur!)
