What I'm Reading
I've just started a book called "A Perfect Red: Empire, Espionage, and the Quest for the Color of Desire" by Amy Butler Greenfield.
This is a history book of sorts, but it covers the history of the color red, and of Cochenille (my company namesake.... www.cochenille.com).
I find it fascinating to see how color played such an important role in life.
I'm pulling out all sorts of tidbits to share in my Textiles and Fashion History classes.
