The color brown is the mother of all colors, the first and last color in the universe. When you mix all the colors and stir everything together, you get brown.
In the ideal world it is different, here all colors become gray when mixed, and in the world of light all colors become white light. But in the world of reality, the one we all find ourselves in with all its flaws and irregularities, all colors turn to brown. It is the inevitable outcome of color entropy, the coloristic terminus.
We pay tribute to the color brown with nothing less than a double edition, PP86/PP87. It is so large that it simply cannot be contained in a single edition. In PP86 we have hand-mixed and printed an exclusive range of browns, 16 shades of brown that stand clean and substantial without frills. In PP87, we have asked 16 artists and writers to write a short text or comment on one of the brown colors that they have each been assigned.
