Story

This monograph from Atelier Éditions visually and anthropologically surveys a collection of over 2500 of the world’s rarest pigments. Pulled from the Straus Center for Conservation and Technical Studies at the Harvard Art Museum, it examines their provenance, composition, symbology, and application. Dr. Narayan Khandekar introduces this academic atlas, which simultaneously explores the field of chromatics and uses theoretical frameworks to interpret the collection anew. Released here in a second, limited edition printing, this is an exceptional piece for any lover of art and design.
