A library of grammatical portraits of books, short stories, essays and plays.


Colorpress is an online and printed collection of grammatical portraits of various books published over the ages. Each portrait is a colored pixellation of all the words in a book color coded by grammar rules. We also color code certain characters and special phrases in the books.

The exhibit at the ITP Winter Show 2014 will feature a high quality printed book featuring a colored portrait of J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, portraits of entire books on postcards and posters, and an online library of selected famous works. The book as well as the website will also feature various data visualizations about certain metadata about the book.

A future step would be to make an online interactive portal where people would be able to order custom prints on their choice of media.
