The Shimmer and Shade of GoldThe Story of the World's Most Fabled Metal

Anette Nyqvist, Susanne Walström

In 24 chapters, social anthropologist Anette Nyqvist and photographer Susanne Walström tell the story of the world’s most fabled metal. Over several years, the authors travelled to places where gold is mined, refined, sold and ultimately used. The authors cover not only the history of gold and its varied applications but also the paradox between the dubious way in which it is often sourced and the glamorous end product.
