Shades of History – Haisam Hussein’s Local Color Map for Lapham’s Quarterly

Shades of history, from woad to mauve

“Lapham’s Quarterly embodies the belief that history is the root of all education, scientific and literary as well as political and economic. Each issue addresses a topic of current interest and concern—war, religion, money, medicine, nature, crime—by bringing up to the microphone of the present the advice and counsel of the past.”
