Nov 29th: COLOUR PRECEPTION & OTHERS – Robert Murray

The speaker at the latest Club night was Robert Murray from Edinburgh, whose subject Colour Perception and Others, immediately caught the attention of his audience. Mr. Murray suggested that if stamps were black and white they would have no appeal to collectors.

On the other hand, due to colour and a variety of shades the hobby became much more exciting. Testing us with many experiments on how we perceive colour and how our eyes can be deceived by surrounding the same colour with bright and dark colours. He also high-lighted the problems of trying to evaluate particular items in our collections.

In His vote of thanks, Jim Hay thanked Mr Murray for “opening our eyes” to better appreciate the theme of stamp shades, and described the programme as “fantastic”.
