From the publisher:

Discover the tantalizing true stories behind your favorite colors.

  • Cleopatra used saffron—a source of the color yellow—for seduction.
  • Extracted from an Afghan mine, the blue “ultramarine” paint used by Michelangelo was so expensive he couldn’t afford to buy it himself.
  • Since ancient times, carmine red—still found in lipsticks and Cherry Coke today—has come from the blood of insects.
