Currently Reading: Colour travels through the paintbox by Victoria Finlay

I am actually reading Victoria Finlays book for the second time as it is so informative. Broken down into colour chapters ochre, black and brown, white, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. Each chapter explores the source of pigments and dyestuffs.Why they became so valuable and the reasons they fell out of favour. A fascinating book which I have studied, making notes and rereading sections. It has reignited my interest in dyestuffs.I have seen this book with a different cover but this Indian window is my favourite.
