INDIGO: IN SEARCH OF THE COLOR THAT SEDUCED THE WORLD., McKinley, Catherine E.
6 McKinley, Catherine E. INDIGO: IN SEARCH OF THE COLOR THAT SEDUCED THE WORLD.
New York Bloomsbury 2011 1608195058 / 9781608195053 First U.S. Edition Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good+ 
235 pp, 8vo (8 1/2" H). B&w and color plates. "For over five millenia, in every culture and every major religion, indigo - a blue pigment obtained from the small green leaf of a parasitic shrub through a complex process that even scientists still regard as mysterious - has been at the center of turbulent human encounters. 'Indigo' is the story of this precious dye and its ancient heritage: its relationship to slavery as one of the 'hidden commodities' of the transatlantic slave trade, its profound influence on fashion (blue jeans, anyone?), and its spiritual significance that is little recognized but no less alive today. It is an untold story, brimming with rich, electrifying tales of common women, everyday heroines, as well as those who wielded great social and political power as renowned master dyers and traders, whose indigo wealth became cornerstones of ancient African empires and twentieth-century anticolonial movements, shaping the course of history and world economics. But (it) is also the story of a personal quest: McKinley's adoptive parents descend from a clan of Scots who wore indigo tartan as their virile armor; she's also the kin of several generations of Jewish 'rag traders', the maternal granddaughter of a Massachusetts textile factory worker, and the paternal granddaughter of African slaves - her ancestors were traded along the same Saharan routes as indigo, where a length of blue cotton could purchase a human life. (Her) journey across the ancient trade routes of West Africa in search of this rare, luminous, and costly blue pigment - in search of beauty and her own history - ultimately leads her to a new and satisfying path, to finally 'taste life'." Light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, tiny tear at top of spine. Dust jacket has minor wrinkling at top of spine and flap-folds, minor rubbing.
