'The Colour of Time' shortlisted for Waterstones Book of the Year 2018

The Waterstones Book of the Year was introduced in 2012. Nominated by booksellers, each year it sets about choosing that exceptional book which simply must be read, judged from the quality of its writing to the sheer beauty of its production.

THE COLOUR OF TIME is one of the eight shortlisted books this year.

Published by Head of Zeus, the book is a collaboration between a gifted Brazilian artist and a leading British historian. Marina Amaral has created 200 stunning images, using contemporary photographs as the basis for her full-colour digital renditions. Dan Jones has written a narrative that anchors each image in its context, and weaves them into a vivid account of the world that we live in today.

The winner will be chosen by a Waterstones panel headed by James Daunt, and the final decision will be announced on Thursday 29 November.
