One of my favorite classics is "The Count of Monte Cristo".
And I wanted to try to create a color that represented the entire book.
I wracked my brain for a really long time to figure it out and had a really hard time of it.
But, then it hit me.
There's this flag I saw a while ago that was a field of light blue with fleur-de-lis on it and it was the emblem of the French monarchy.
Since "The Count of Monte Cristo" takes place during the French restoration, I thought it would be a perfect color.
I went through a bunch of iterations and settled on this color.
Allow me to introduce you to: "French Blue".
In really, this color is not actually the blue that's on the flag, that color is a darker blue.
But, I decided to stick with it because...well...I really like the color.
So, here it is, my take on French Blue.
