Secret Lives Of Colour
Every colour, shade, hue and tone has a story. The Secret of Lives of Colour is a rich compilation of 75 colours, their creation, meaning and place in history. Author Kassia St Clair is a journalist who has written about design and culture, lending her expertise to publications like The Economist, House & Garden and currently Elle Decoration with a column on colour since 2013.
This book is a comprehensive and lively study on a lifelong passion for the origin of colour, developed from St Clair's academic training at Bristol and Oxford universities. Her intriguing and surprising stories trace each colour like an endless thread and how they are connected with society, politics and art. As she weaves through blonde to fluorescent pink, each tale reveals a unique commentary on culture and human civilisation itself.
