The Colour of Time

Author: Dan Jones, Marina Amaral Format: Hardback Release Date: 04/08/2022

The third volume in Marina Amaral and Dan Jones's bestselling Histories in Colour series. The Colour of Time: Women, 1850–1960 explores the many roles – domestic, social, cultural and professional – played by women across the world from 1850–1960, before second-wave feminism took hold. Using Marina's colourized images and Dan Jones's words, this survey shines a light on the varied pursuits of women both celebrated and ordinary, whether in the home or the science lab, protesting on the streets or performing on stage, fighting in the trenches or exploring the wild. Each chapter is introduced by a woman who works in that field, offering insights into their job and experiences. The book includes photographs of Queen Victoria, Edith Cavell, Josephine Baker, Mildred Burke, Eva Peron, Eleanor Roosevelt, Virginia Woolf, Clara Schumann, Martha Gellhorn, Simone de Beauvoir, Agatha Christie, Frida Kahlo, Emmeline Pankhurst, Harriet Tubman, Florence Nightingale, Hattie McDaniel and Gertrude Bell; as well as revolutionaries from China to Cuba, Geishas in Japan, protestors on the Salt March, teachers and pilots, nurses and soldiers. This vivid and unique history brings to life and full colour the female experience in a century of extraordinary change.

The World Aflame The Long War, 1914-1945

Author: Marina Amaral, Dan Jones Format: Hardback Release Date: 14/05/2020

The epic, harrowing and world-changing story - in words and colourized images - of global conflict from the assassination of the Archduke Franz Ferdinand to the obliteration of Hiroshima by the dropping of the first atom bomb. The World Aflame will embrace not only the total conflagrations of 1914-18 and 1939-45 and the international tensions, conflicting ideologies and malign economic forces that set them in train, but also the civil wars of the interwar period in Ireland and Spain, wars in Latin America, Britain's imperial travails in such places as Ireland, Somalia and Palestine, and events on the domestic 'fronts' of the belligerent nations. Like The Colour of Time, The World Aflame is a collaboration between the gifted Brazilian artist Marina Amaral, and the leading British historian Dan Jones. Marina has created 200 stunning images, using contemporary photographs as the basis for her full-colour digital renditions. The accompanying narrative anchors each image in its context, weaving them into a vivid account of four decades of conflict that shaped the world we live in today. A fusion of amazing pictures and well-chosen and informative words, The World Aflame offers a moving - and often terrifying - perspective on the bloodiest century in human history.
