Colour In The Making
From Old Wisdom To New Brilliance
Publisher: Black Dog Publishing
A visual history of art and design told through the lens of an ever-evolving colour palette from the discovery and use of early earth pigments through to organic chemistry and into contemporary dyes, inks, printing techniques, and manufacture. Throughout this sumptuously colorful book, studies of artists' and designers' projects illustrate the often-overlooked inventions and processes involved in color-making.
