For those who will use the long weekend to take a much needed break, why not surround yourself with the warmth and vibrancy of Yellow: The History of a Colour. In this richly illustrated book, Michel Pastoureau―a renowned authority on the history of color and the author of celebrated volumes on blue, black, green, and red―now traces the visual, social, and cultural history of yellow. Focusing on European societies, with comparisons from East Asia, India, Africa, and South America, Yellow tells the intriguing story of the color’s evolving place in art, religion, fashion, literature, and science.
Finally, readers looking to get lost in a good book should look no further than A Single Thread from global bestselling author of Girl with a Pearl Earring, Tracey Chevalier. It is 1932, and the losses of the First World War are still keenly felt. Violet Speedwell, mourning for both her fiancé and her brother and regarded by society as a ‘surplus woman’ unlikely to marry, resolves to escape her suffocating mother and strike out alone. A new life awaits her in Winchester. Violet falls in with the broderers, a disparate group of women charged with embroidering kneelers for the Cathedral, and is soon entwined in their lives and their secrets.
