Color: A Natural History of the Palette, by Victoria Finlay takes the reader on a world tour of natural pigments: where they originated, how they were manufactured, their role in global exploration and commerce, and their impact on cultural development and artistic expression. Not written as scientific treatise, this book reads like a travelogue filled with interesting facts and humorous anecdotes. Whether you’re an artist, travel buff, interested in the history of civilizations, or just love a good read about unexpected adventures, this book should grab your attention and hold it.
