From Fungi to Fossil Fuels: Uncovering the Origins of the World's Most Famous Dyes
By Lauren MacDonald. Edited by Ananda Pellerin.

An engrossing look at the rich and turbulent history of coloring cloth over the centuries our manipulation of the natural world has resulted in an explosion of synthetic dye production and application globally. To gain insight into the history of how folk practices have been lost and technical processes found, anthropologist and textile artist Lauren MacDonald explores a practice that is both ancient and wholly modern: coloring cloth. The pursuit of color has long spurred economic and social contest, and through this deeply researched volume we explore the stories that the materials used to dye cloth tell us about our complex relationship to nature, our troubling ideas about progress and our understanding of power and labor.
