The main section of this handbook contains seven series of drawings; an appendix contains a number of further works (including works completed in collaboration with other artists) and an extensive interview with Moussa Kone. Each chapter begins with a text and one of the colours of the rainbow. Exhibition views are frequently provided between the individual drawings, yielding surprising associations. The finely dissected works lose much of their wealth of detail when reduced in size, which is why full-size detail views of the drawings are inserted bleeding off the page - and revealing the drawer's gaze to the reader.
