The Secret Lives of Colour (Hardback)

Kassia St Clair


The Secret Lives of Colour tells the unusual stories of the 75 most fascinating shades, dyes and hues and explores the vivid tale of our culture.

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, these thought-provoking stories run like a bright thread throughout history.

Sunday Times bestselling author Kassia St Clair uses her lifelong obsession with colours to bring readers this unique study of human civilisation across fashion, politics, art and war.
