I was blown away by all of the research Amy did to prepare for this month’s daily color facts. In addition to learning all sorts of amazing facts (I didn’t know that monks in Thailand dye their robes with the heart of the jack fruit once a year!), Amy exposed us to an incredible range of books that share the fascinating world of color history. While we’ll be sharing our favorite facts here every day, we wanted to share these books in case you were interested in delving deeper in the history of colors. Amy says that the most helpful book, by far, was by Victoria Finlay. Who could pass up the chance to learn things like where the expression “feeling blue” truly comes from? xo, grace
