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.
- Type of writing system: alphabet

How the colours map to the letters, and their RGB coding.
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They
are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another
in a spirit of brotherhood.
