My indigo world : a true story of the color blue / Rosa Chang.

Chang, Rosa, (author,, illustrator.).


"Rosa, a Korean girl, falls in love with the color blue--the dazzling blue of the sea and sky, and the bold, bright indigo-blue stripe in her traditional hanbok robe. Years later, as an artist living in the United States, Rosa learns the ancient Korean method of indigo dyeing, creates indigo arts and crafts, and even grows her own indigo plants at a Baltimore community garden." -- inside front jacket flap.
This gorgeous celebration of the color blue and the indigo plant, by a Korean American debut artist and storyteller, powerfully connects art and the natural world. With lavish mixed-media art including watercolor painting and hand-dyed textiles, debut author-illustrator Rosa Chang pays tribute to the science and art of growing the indigo plant and making indigo dye. Woven throughout is a poetic tribute to the color blue, Chang's favorite since her girlhood in Korea, and an appreciation of the indigo plant as a valued source of blue dye in cultures around the world. Informative back matter tells more about the science behind indigo dye production, with an "indigo map" of the shades of blue produced by indigo around the world, and simple instructions for growing your own indigo plants and making homemade blue dye.
