What do we think of when we think pink? In this richly illustrated homage to the color, artist Kaye Blegvad explores its significance across history and cultures, from gender connotations to product marketing, symbols and iconography, and more. Through engaging mini essays, interactive exercises, object studies, and interviews, readers will learn about a vibrant miscellany of pink facts and pink occurrences: like iconic applications of the color, from Elvis’s cars to cotton candy; or the etymology of phrases like “tickled pink,” “pink slip,” or “rose-tinted glasses.” Presented in an eye-catching pink package with vibrant page edges, this collection will captivate those with a passion for pink and anyone with a curiosity about color.
