druxey Posted March 3, 2019 Share #1 Posted March 3, 2019 (edited) I'd like to draw your attention to a new book on the history for the use of blue on ships. This book, now in English, by Joachim Mullerschon is available through: http://www.modellbau-muellerschoen.de/buch-en.htm Titled The colour blue in historic shipbuilding, originally Die Farbe Blau im historischen Schiffbau - von der Antike bis zur Neuzeit, This book, lavishly illustrated in color, traces the use of different blue pigments from antiquity to the present as used on ships. Chemistry, social history and geography are just some of the topics covered by this monograph. I will leave it for someone else to review critically in detail, as - full disclosure - I was the English language editor of this volume.
