The Colour of Time: A New History of the World, 1850-1960, Paperback / softback Book

The Colour of Time: A New History of the World, 1850-1960 Paperback / softback


The Colour of Time spans more than a hundred years of world history from the reign of Queen Victoria and the US Civil War to the Cuban Missile Crisis and beginning of the Space Age.

It charts 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 men and women who made history.

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.

Dan Jones has written a narrative that anchors each image in its context, and weaves them into a vivid account of the world that 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.

This compact edition of The Colour of Time makes the perfect gift for anyone (and not just anyone interested in history).
