It takes black-and-white photos of historic events and colours them in. The effect is transformative' <i>Telegraph</i></p><p>'Purists argue that colourising black and white photographs is sacrilege, but the world has always been in colour. Truth be told, monochrome is a contrivance. Human experience is always colourful' <i>The Times</i></p><p>'A splash of colour is all it took to bring these historic black and white photos back to vivid, breathtaking life ... Astonishing' <i>The Sun</i></p><p>'Both revelatory and familiar. Amaral's skills bring 19th- and early 20th-century photographic images to wholly unexpected and vivid life ... Jones offers perceptive commentary, contextualising the events and people depicted with concise skill, meaning that this fine book is hugely readable' <i>Observer</i></p>

Quotes

<b>PRAISE FOR DAN JONES AND MARINA AMARAL</b>: <br />
'I have long considered colourisation sacrilege ... after reading this book, I've changed my mind' <i>The Times</i>, on <i>The Colour of Time</i>. <br />
'Amaral's colourisation process is most moving when applied to pictures of children. To see it more as the photographer saw it, and the way it actually was. The photographer might not have had the choice, or the technology, to take a picture in colour. But looking through the viewfinder, that's what they saw; the past – even its grimmest, darkest hours – was not in black and white' <i>Guardian</i>, on <i>The World Aflame</i>. <br />
'There is something of <i>The Wizard of Oz</i> about Marina Amaral's photographs. She whisks us from black-and-white Kansas to shimmering Technicolor Oz ... When you see Amaral's coloured portraits, you think: phwoar! ... She changes the way we see a period or a person' <i>Spectator</i>, on <i>The Colour of Time</i>. <br />
'[Amaral] breathes new life, immediacy and human connection into black-and-white pictures. Even familiar shots are transformed in a breathtaking way'
