It's a familiar shade that is used for everything from clothing to bedding, which is why Indigo: The Color that Changed the World is a comprehensive historical publication that dates the familiar shade's iconic past. Written/curated by Catherine Legrand, Indigo: The Color that Changed the World tracks how we have used the indigofera plant in the textile industry for centuries.

The work is a chromatic history lesson that will surely leave the reader spellbound by the pervasive nature that a chromatic shade can have on a society. It's written in such a manner that puts a level balance on text and pictures, which will help to stimulate the mind in ways that expand our preconceived notions relating to color.

Indigo: The Color that Changed the World is sure to make you appreciate the colors we take for granted on a daily basis and come to think deeper about what we experience everyday.
