Las vidas secretas del color cuenta las historias inusuales de setenta y cinco tonos, tintes y matices fascinantes. Del rubio al jengibre, del castaño que cambió la forma de luchar en las batallas al blanco que protegía contra la peste, del período azul de Picasso al carbón de las paredes de la cueva de Lascaux, del amarillo ácido al verde kelly, y del escarlata de las mujeres al púrpura imperial, estas sorprendentes historias corren como un hilo brillante a lo largo de la historia.
En este libro, Kassia St. Clair ha convertido su obsesión de toda la vida por los colores y su procedencia (ya sean los girasoles amarillo cromo de Van Gogh o el rosa fluorescente del punk) en un estudio único de la civilización humana. A través de la moda y la política, el arte y la guerra, las vidas secretas del color cuentan la vívida historia de nuestra cultura.
