True Colors by Keith Recker (Hardcover)

"Keith Recker introduces us to artisans all over the world--from hereditary craftspeople in indigenous communities to millennial fashion designers--dedicated to harvesting the color by fermenting plants or boiling flowers or pulverizing beetles or milking snails. It is shocking how little most of us know about how the natural world has yielded its colors to us for millennia, even though it's only been a tiny blip of time in human history that we have been relying on synthetic dyes. What's even more shocking is that nearly every one of the methods Recker highlights--from indigo to cochineal--had all but died out in the very communities where people had once practiced them for generations. The makers in this book have diligently reclaimed older techniques and practices, bringing back essential aspects of their own cultural identities. The current revival in creating color from nature is an act of imagination, and an expression of our shared humanity." --DEBORAH NEEDLEMAN, writer and former editor of T: The New York Times Style Magazine, WSJ Magazine, and founding editor in chief of Domino Magazine Number of Pages: 252 Genre: Art Sub-Genre: Techniques Format: Hardcover Publisher: Thrums, LLC Age Range: Adult Book theme: Color Author: Keith Recker Language: English
