The Secret Lives of Colour, by Kassia St Clair

36.99

“I bought this book for its cover. The book is organized by colour, which is totally satisfying, and can be read in any order according to mood. A former magazine writer and historian of textile and dress, Kassia St Clair has created hundreds of mini-stories about every imaginable colour and hue. If you don't want to read an essay about taupe you can always flip ahead to the beautiful Celadon green, which teases out the politics, poetry, East-West trade relations, fashion, and chemistry that this milky, mossy green has taken on over the years.”
