Colourful Histories talk with author

Kassia St Clair, author of The Secret Lives of Colour, a top-ten bestseller and Radio 4 Book of the Week, explores the histories of five pigments, dyes and hues. Learn about the green that could have killed Charles Dickens before he wrote ‘A Tale of Two Cities’; the molluscs that gave us royal purple; and the costly blue that entranced artists of the Renaissance.
