Hi, unusual request, but I am doing a translation and need the page number for the second quote “When we try to imagine color, it may be necessary to erase from our minds….” The book looks beautiful and I would love to read it/have it in my hands, but right now (Covid) libraries are closed and I only have the Internet as resource.
