After over a year of intense work, I am extremely proud and excited to announce my first book: THE COLOUR OF TIME. Spanning more than a hundred years of world history from the reign of Queen Victoria and the American Civil War to the Cuban Missile Crisis and the beginning of the Space Age, The Colour of Time will chart the rise and fall of empires, the achievements of science, industry and the arts, the tragedies of war and the politics of peace, and the lives of the men and women who made history. We will tell you this fascinating story through 200 stunning colorized photographs – the majority of them will be seen in color for the first time ever.

The Colour of Time is the first in a planned series of books, which offer a new and exciting way of bringing the past to life in the present.

This project is a collaboration between me and bestselling historian Dan Jones, who is an author with an incredible and unique talent to tell stories. His narrative anchors each image in its chronological context, and weaves them into a compelling account of the events that made the world we live in today. Having the opportunity to work with him has been one of the best and greatest experiences of my life. We are both very excited and eager to share more details soon!
