Did you know that the Egyptians created the first synthetic color? Or that the noblest purple comes from a predatory sea snail?

Throughout history, artists' pigments have been made from deadly metals, poisonous minerals, urine, cow dung and even crushed insects.

From grinding beetles and burning animal bones to alchemy and sheer luck, Chromatopia reveals the stories of the origins behind more than fifty of the most vivid color pigments in history.

A book that spans from the ancient world to the modern world of technology ideal for the artist, history buff, science lover and design fanatic.
