Not yet rated | write a review
The publication in 1977 of Ul de Rico''s first book, "The Rainbow Goblins," introduced us to an artist whose spectacular use of color was astonishing and joyful. He used his unique skills to tell a tale that has had the lasting power of legend: the overwhelming defeat of the seven goblins of the spectrum who sought to take over the colors of the rainbow.

Now almost twenty years later, Ul de Rico offers us the complementary tale of the eighth goblin, the white one, banished by his evil brothers to the colorless wastes of the North. There he has suffered in isolation until the day he learns of his brothers'' catastrophe and sets out to enjoy the world of color again. He persuades the colorless Cave Goblins to venture out of their safe homes and follow him into the world where they can enjoy and feed themselves on all the colors of nature. Overcome by greed, they set up huge communities and rob the world of all its colors. In the end all sources are exhausted, and Ul de Rico''s visionary paintings show us how a handful of Cave Goblins rediscover color''s vital importance to life, and return the world to its blissful origins.
