The word of the day comes from THE DEATH OF NOAH GLASS by Gail Jones, which is longlisted for the 2019 Miles Franklin Award,


A cyanometer (from cyan and -meter) is an instrument for measuring 'blueness', specifically the colour intensity of blue sky. It is attributed to Horace-Bénédict de Saussure and Alexander von Humboldt. It consists of squares of paper dyed in graduated shades of blue and arranged in a color circle or square that can be held up and compared to the color of the sky.
