It is dark, gloomy and decidedly cooler today. Perfect for curling up with a book. This is my latest aquisition;
The Secret Lives of Colour by Kassia St Clair
ISBN 9781473630819 hardback
ISBN 97814730630826 ebook
I have only dipped into it so far - it is that kind of book (you don't have to read it in any particular order). The history/story of 75 colours are discussed individually. There are chapters on the science, politics and language of colour. At the end there is a glossary of other 'interesting colours'. I rather hope that this may mean a second volume may be in the future. I am enjoying her writing style and will keep this book for the gloomy days to come as something to look forward to it will chase the dull greys away.
The Golden Thread: How Fabric Changed History
ISBN 9781473659032 has just been released and also sounds like an interesting read.
Anyway that is me set for today, hot coffee, a great book .... maybe a jammy dodger or two ;o) What are you reading at the moment?
