True Colors: World Masters of Natural Dyes and Pigments

Author: Keith Recker

True Colors is about artists who create color from natural materials and about the historical importance and environmental sustainability of this practice. Deep conversations with twenty-eight artisans from every part of the globe reveal their wisdom, traditions, and know-how--and suggest that we ignore what they know at our peril. Traditional approaches to making color offer sustainable options to a fashion system badly in need of them and memorable cultural narratives to a world hungry for beauty and spirituality. True Colors provides an immersive visual experience and an inspiring travelogue of personal stories and practical information from artists who are leaving their mark on the world.

Keith Recker is President and co-founder of HAND/EYE magazine, a multidisciplinary journal of global handmade creativity. He is also a board member and Creative Director of the International Folk Art Market in Santa Fe. He was the Executive Director of Aid to Artisans and served on its Board of Directors for many years. His previous book, PANTONE: The Twentieth Century in Color, has been translated into eleven languages. Through his specialized consulting practice, he currently provides trend and color intelligence to the Pantone Color Institute and other forward-looking clients
