The Book

Named after a black material developed by Surrey NanoSystems, a material which absorbs up to 99.965% of visible light, Vantablack is a meditation on the physical properties of the colour black, on the black of grief, elegance, seriousness, formality, rebellion, darkness, death and sadness.
