"Page through A Red Like No Other, and you're stuck again and again with astonishment at the sumptuous full-page images of clothing made with cochineal--at the radiant beauty of a salmon silk cloak trimmed in silver from 16th century France, a vibrant red wool surcoat from 19th century Japan, a pair of sturdily exquisite red silk shoes with gold tracery from 18th century Spain and the elegant haute couture Eleanora dress that designer Mariano Fortuny created in the 1930s for a favorite Italian actress."

"You will never look at red in the same way again. This beautiful new volume covers the color red in art, crafts, fashion, design, power, royalty, religion and interiors, with 350 color illustrations.
A Red Like No Other follows the substance from Mexico to Europe and beyond. . . I loved its esoteric approach, showing how red touched cultures worldwide, including pre-Columbian weavers, Italian textile dyers, painters of Spain’s Golden Age, and nineteenth-century Navajo weavers. El Greco, Tintoretto, Velázquez, van Dyck, Rembrandt, Vermeer, and van Gogh used it, as did Spanish fashion icon Mariano Fortuny. Today, contemporary artists and designers continue to love all shades of red for its evocative beauty and symbolic meaning."
