The Secret Lives of Colour by Kassia St Clair
The Secret Lives of Colour tells the unusual stories of the 75 most fascinating shades, dyes and hues.
In this book, Kassia St Clair has turned her lifelong obsession with colours and where they come from into a unique study of human civilisation.
From blonde to ginger, the brown that changed the way battles were fought to the white that protected against the plague, or Picasso's blue period - these surprising stories run like a bright thread throughout history.
