520    "In The Alchemy of Paint: Art, Science and Secrets from 
       the Middle Ages, Spike Bucklow sets out to unravel the 
       myths behind pigments like dragonsblood - said to be a 
       mixture of elephant and dragon blood. Examining both the 
       medieval palette and the often cloak-and-dagger science 
       that created it, he uncovers the secret recipes behind the
       luxurious colours we are familiar with today. Driven by an
       overriding passion for art, his aim is to restore value to
       colour. The purity of white is not owned by a computer 
       manufacturer. Spike Bucklow reminds us all that our 
       experience of colour is fundamentally a natural sensation 
       that can verge on the divine."--BOOK JACKET.
