The colorAlphabet is a method of writing English using colours invented by Christian Faur. It is made of 26 distinct colours which map to the 26 letters of the English alphabet. This alphabet is designed to allow Christian, as an artist, to construct meaning out of color directly and unambiguously using the English system of language that he is already familiar with.
