Irma Boom has made a series of color palettes of 80 UNESCO nature sites around the world, and compiled the palettes into a beautiful publication called ‘Color-Based on Nature’, in cooperation with Thomas Eyck. It emulates a color sample book in that it not only shows a wide variety of palettes but also includes strips that can be torn out. She’s taken a line of pixels from a picture, and stretched them out, essentially giving you a stretched ultra zoom of the world heritage site.
These have been made into wallpaper series consisting of 7 of the palettes in the book. Below right is the Waddensea (The Netherlands & Germany).
