Full Spectrum : How the Science of Color Made Us Modern

$29.00

 "Informative and entertaining...Rogers is a seasoned raconteur, unreeling an eons-spanning tale with skill." --Wall Street Journal

A lively account of our age-old quest for brighter colors, which changed the way we see the world, from the best-selling author of Proof: The Science of Booze

From kelly green to millennial pink, our world is graced with a richness of colors. But our human-made colors haven't always matched nature's kaleidoscopic array. To reach those brightest heights required millennia of remarkable innovation and a fascinating exchange of ideas between science and craft that's allowed for the most luminous manifestations of our built and adorned world.
