The third volume in the much-admired The Colour of Time series. A Woman's World, 18501960 explores the many roles domestic, social, cultural and professional played by women across the world before second-wave feminism took hold. Using Marina Amaral's colourized images and Dan Jones's words, this survey features women both celebrated and ordinary, whether in the science lab or protesting on the streets, performing on stage or fighting in the trenches, running for election or exploring the wild. This vivid and unique history brings to life and full colour the female experience in a century of extraordinary change. Photographs include: Queen Victoria, Edith Cavell, Josephine Baker, Eva Peron, Virginia Woolf, Clara Schumann, Martha Gellhorn, Rosa Parks, Agatha Christie, Frida Kahlo, Harriet Tubman, Florence Nightingale, Hattie McDaniel and Gertrude Bell; as well as revolutionaries from China to Cuba, Geishas in Japan, protestors on the Salt March, teachers and pilots, nurses and soldiers.

Every bit as fascinating and revelatory as its predecessors. Jones's text is authoritative and witty, but the main appeal lies in Amaral's delicate colourisation of photographs, bringing subjects including Frida Kahlo back to life... This fine book is a moving testament to the power of social change * Observer * [These] striking images offer a new window on to fascinating, inspiring lives * History Revealed * Transform[s] them into people you feel you could meet today, making their stories all the more fascinating * Waitrose Magazine * A beautiful thing to keep on your coffee table or bookshelf. 5* * All About History * PRAISE FOR DAN JONES AND MARINA AMARAL: 'I have long considered colourisation sacrilege... after reading this book, I've changed my mind' The Times, on The Colour of Time. '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' Guardian, on The World Aflame. 'There is something of The Wizard of Oz 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' Spectator, on The Colour of Time. '[Amaral] breathes new life, immediacy and human connection into black-and-white pictures. Even familiar shots are transformed in a breathtaking way' * Irish News, on The Colour of Time *
