Product Description

The unforgettable history of colours and the vivid stories behind them in a beautiful multi-coloured volume.

The Secret Lives of Colour reveals the unusual stories of the 75 most fascinating shades, dyes and hues. From blonde to ginger, the brown that changed the way battles were fought to the white that protected against the plague, Picasso's blue period to the charcoal on the cave walls at Lascaux, acid yellow to kelly green, and from scarlet women to imperial purple, these surprising stories run like a bright thread throughout history.

Author Kassia St Clair has turned her lifelong obsession with colours and where they come from into a unique study of human civilisation. Across fashion and politics, art and war, The Secret Lives of Colour tell the vivid story of our culture.
