I happened to read the Eau-de-Nil piece the other week & found it very interesting, but hadn't noticed it was part of a series: many thanks for the links, Hypatia!

I like the periwinkle one, I'll have to come back and read the others.

This is a bit off-topic, but looking through these reminded me that one of my favorite parts of the HBO production of "My Brilliant Friend" has been the different background colors of each episode's end credits. We watch on a projector screen, and the arrival of each credit scene is like a blast of color therapy, each color surprising, unusual, and I'm sure possessed of its own long history, but most of which I don't have a good name for.

Wonderful round-up, thank you for the links. Katy Kelleher is the topic of two previous MeFi posts that may also be of interest: "It’s an ugly thing, the way we treat both women and mollusks" and "All the Whites You Cannot Name" (not people). For the mods: may be worth adding the Katy Kelleher tag to connect this post to those.

Maybe she'll do a proper article on Ashes-of-Roses and nymph's thigh and Millennial Pink, a coincidence that seems worth turning over to me. At least the illustrations would be charming-creepy.

Oo, also a series on ugliness in art, not in the sense of "women and mollusks", that looks interesting.

Wonderful, thank you!

Those are really great, love the way Kelleher manages to tie in so much history with a love of colors and their poetic sensibilities.
