The travel narrative part, the narrative part of the story, Colour unlocks the history of the colours of the rainbow, and reveals how the paintings came to be invented, discovered, marketed and used.This remarkable and beautifully written book recalls a time when red paint was really the color of blood, when orange was the poison the dye, blue as expensive as gold and yellow, made from the urine of cows force-fed cows fed with mangoes.It examines how the green was worn by yaks along the silk road, and how the whole nation was founded on purple color.Passionate, very informative, and always surprising,’ Colour’ lifts the lid off the history of the palette and reveals an astonishing richness of stories about the quest for colors, and our efforts to understand them.
