The Colour of Time: A New History of the World, 1850-1960
The book is a collaboration between a gifted Brazilian artist and a leading British historian.
Marina Amaral has created 200 stunning images, using contemporary photographs as the basis for her full-colour digital renditions and bringing each of them to life in a style uniquely her own. Dan Jones has written a narrative that anchors each image in its context, and weaves them into a vivid account of the world that made the world we live in today. A fusion of amazing pictures and well-chosen words, The Colour of Time offers a unique – and often beautiful – perspective on the past.
