Description - The Pink Book by Kaye Blegvad

What do we think of when we think pink? In this richly illustrated homage to the colour, artist Kaye Blegvad explores its significance across history and cultures, from gender connotations to product marketing, symbols and iconography, and more. Through surveys, interactive exercises, object studies, and engaging mini essays, readers will learn about a vibrant miscellany of pink facts and pink occurrences: like iconic applications of the colour, from Elvis's cars to fairy floss; or pink appearances in nature, like the orchid mantis that resembles a pink flower to attract prey; or the etymology of phrases like "tickled pink" or "pink slip." Presented in an eye-catching pink package with vibrant page edges, this collection will captivate those with a passion for pink and anyone with a curiosity about color.
