So my colour-book combinations tend to take into account the colours of the letters in the title, words I'm hearing or the voice on the audio book. For instance, The Old Kingdom books by Garth Nix are sort of a rich, golden brown because of Tim Curry's voice on the audio book. If I were just thinking about the book, they should be blue and silver because of the traditional colours of the protagonist's house.

Never thought about it! Ha.) Maybe it's like how folks for the longest time couldn't see the colour blue (according to scientists) and it was a gradually developed thing until almost everyone does? So sooner or later the species as a whole will have a wider palate of sensation?
