“But it was always about more than having a blue outfit, piece of jewelry, or work of art. Because of its scarcity, mystery, and holy associations, blue was more than a color. It was a feeling.”
This history of the color blue is a powerful one. Going back to ancient Afghan painters centuries ago, to 1905, it was expensive work to find and dye fabrics blue.
Filled with rich and vibrant color, this book was illustrated by Caldecott Honor Artist, Daniel Minter.
