'Deeper Than Indigo' by Jenny Balfour Paul

Appearing at the Sharjah International Book Fair 2016

In 1999, in the depths of the British Library, historian and indigo expert, Jenny Balfour Paul, came across the five journal volumes of Victorian adventurer and fellow indigo-lover, Thomas Machell.

Enchanted by the vivacity of Thomas's voice, and a shared passion for indigo, Jenny found herself caught up in the adventurer's travels.  Jenny set out on her own voyage, tracing his footsteps across oceans and continents for ten years, on a quest to discover and understand this extraordinary character.  Through a combination of the author's own memoirs, sketches and recollections of travels, entwined with Thomas Machell's tales and intricate
drawings, Deeper than Indigo offers a unique insight into the social history of the British Raj, while telling the story of a forgotten pioneer, whose startling diaries shed a surprisingly progressive light on European colonialism.

“One of the most remarkable books I've ever read” A. N. Wilson 

Jenny will be taking part in 'The Flying Carpet - Travel Literature and its Necessity' panel on Monday 7th November at 6pm in the Book Forum at Sharjah Expo Centre. 

About the author:

An intrepid traveller, Devon-based writer, artist, and international lecturer, Jenny Balfour Paul is author of two classic titles on indigo. Jenny is an Honorary Research Fellow at Exeter University; a Fellow, Councillor and Trustee of London's Royal Geographical Society, Fellow of the Royal Asiatic Society and New York's Explorers Club; and President of the UK's Association of Guilds of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers. She is the world's leading expert on indigo. deeperthanindigo.com
