The Secret Lives of Color tells the unusual stories of 75 fascinating shades, dyes, & hues. From the brown that changed the way battles were fought to the white that protected against the plague, from Picasso's blue period to the charcoal on the cave walls at Lascaux, from scarlet women to punk's industrial pink, these surprising stories run like a bright thread through history.

In this book, Kassia St. Clair has turned her lifelong obsession with colors & where they come from into a unique study of human civilization. Across fashion & politics, art & war, the secret lives of color tell vivid story of our culture.
