The colour yellow signifies the decadent and aesthetic attitudes that were fashionable at the turn of the 19th century, typified by such publications as The Yellow Book, a literary journal associated with Oscar Wilde and Aubrey Beardsley. It has also been suggested that the colour yellow represents quarantine — an allusion to decay, disease, and specifically mental illness. It could also be associated with the Yellow Peril.
