About the Edition

Colour in the Making is a visual history of art and design told through the materials of color from the discovery and use of early earth pigments through lakes to organic chemistry and into contemporary dyes, inks, printing techniques and manufacture. Throughout this sumptuously colorful book artists’ and designers’ projects illustrate the often behind the scenes inventions and processes of color-making. In doing so Colour in the Making, through its international and deep exploration of the field of color, shows that art and science have always been inextricably linked.
