520    Did you know that the Egyptians created the first 
       synthetic colour; or that the noblest purple comes from a 
       predatory sea snail? Throughout history, artist pigments 
       have been made from deadly metals, poisonous minerals, 
       urine, cow dung, and even crushed insects. From grinding 
       down beetles and burning animal bones to alchemy and 
       serendipity,Chromatopia reveals the origin stories of over
       50 of history's most extraordinary pigments.Spanning the 
       ancient world to modern leaps in technology, this is a 
       book for the artist, the history buff, the science lover 
       and the design fanatic.
