Considers the fact that Tolkien rarely uses any but unadulterated basic color names (red, white, yellow, etc.) and gave unusually positive associations to neutral brown and grey. Also considers Tolkien’s use of color in character identity and heraldry, and traces some of this to literature Tolkien studied as a scholar, as well as his interest and abilities in graphic arts.
