The vivid stories of 75 fascinating shades, dyes and hues through the culture which created them. Considering the origin of pigments, their uses and how we see them, across fashion and politics, art and war. From charcoal on cave walls at Lascaux and Ancient Egyptian kohl, to white that protected against the plague and an off-white named for an Archduchess's underwear, via the first blonde, Tyrian purple, Prussian blue, Scheele's green and attempts to pin-down taupe in the 1930s.

Hardback, 320 pages, illustrated throughout with shaded colour chart illustrations.
