Pseudonym of US industrial colour consultant and author Faber Birren (1900-1988), prolific as a theorist in the printing and the art of colour from 1934 under his own name; his one work of some sf interest, Terra: An Allegory (1953), places symbolic characters and events in a vague Near Future context, where they contend for the soul of humanity.
