Description


A brilliant artist and a bestselling historian have combined their talents to bring vividly to life two hundred photographs of the defining events and personalities of the modern world.

The Color of Time spans more than one hundred years of world history—from the reign of Queen Victoria and the American Civil War to the Cuban Missile Crisis and the beginning of the Space Age. It charts the rise and fall of empires, the achievements of science, industrial developments, the arts, the tragedies of war, the politics of peace, and the lives of men and women who made history.

This illustrated narrative is a collaboration between a gifted Brazilian artist and a New York Times bestselling British historian. Marina Amaral has created two hundred stunning images, using rare photographs as the basis for her full-color 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 Color of Time offers a unique—and often beautiful—perspective on the past.
