The Colour of Time by Dan Jones and Marina Amaral

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

The book is a collaboration between a gifted Brazilian artist and a leading British historian.  Marina Amaral has created 200 stunning images, using contemporary photographs as the basis for her full-colour 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 Colour of Time offers a unique – and often beautiful – perspective on the past.

Peer & Press Reviews

[The Colour of Time] does something simple yet extraordinary.  It takes black-and-white photos of historic events and colours them in.  The effect is transformative.

Daily Telegraph

When you see Amaral’s coloured portraits, you think: phwoar!… she changes the way we see a period or a person.

Spectator

The effect of colour is far more transformative than you might imagine…  [Amaral’s] touched-up photographs look even more realistic, and closer to life, than a photograph taken yesterday…  Extraordinary.
