Customizable notebooks, edges’ color for your writing


What is the color?

When speaking to customizable Mypaperbook notebooks, you can’t miss their edge colors. But before to see in detail their seven edge colors, the first question is: what is the color?

From a scientific point of view, the color corresponds to a part of the frequencies of electromagnetic radiation perceived by the eye and called visible light spectrum. In other words, the color appears to us in function of the visible wavelength. To capture this light, our eyes have photosensitive cells. Thanks to them, we can see up to 10 million color shades. However, each eye has its version of colors. As the individual is unique, his eyes are also just like his brain! In fact, our brain interprets the amount of light that enters our eyes. An it provides an interpretation.

The most recent example is the viral story about a dress’ color published on the Internet. The author wrote a caption for the photo in one simple question: Is the dress white and gold or blue and black? Thousands of people responded but no unanimous answer was given. But it’s normal. There is no one answer to this question, that depends entirely on the perception of each. The scientific explanation made to this question is that perception is unique to each, and is based on receptors in the fundus.
