← Sky-blue-pink. A colour never before seen?

Richard, I don't know if you have ever read a short interesting story written by Luis Lowry. It is titled, The Giver. In it, a young boy, Jonas begins to see the color red for the first time, but only once in a while. The rest of his community is actually color blind through genetic manipulation and controlled breeding over many years. The author tries and succeeds (in my opinion) to describe wht it would be like to see a color for the first time, you might want to spend an afternoon reading the book, it is quite original and thoughtful.
