THIS BOOK! How I loved diving into this one. It answered so many of my childhood curiosities that mostly had to do with where color comes from and the affects of it in different forms.
Now that I’m a full time natural dye practitioner, it afforded me more context to what I work on daily.
I can’t recommend this enough. Even if you’re remotely interested in history via a color contact. The lay out and research behind it alone is something to behold.
