The Wick - The World According to Colour: A Cultural History by James Fox


Object The World According to Colour: A Cultural History by James Fox

James Fox’s ambitious new book looks at our extraordinary relationship with colour. Thoroughly researched and visually engaging, it takes us on a journey through time and place to unriddle the meanings that have been associated with seven primary colours — black, red, yellow, blue, white, purple and green — and the ways these have shaped our society, culture and imagination. Fox confidently addresses a wide range of historical, cultural and scientific sources to provide context for what has been described as his ‘succession of bravura insights’. This is an enjoyable — and surprisingly easy — read that will brighten up those pesky winter blues.
