Issue #42: Hypercritic's Blue Period 💙

The Hypercritic Weekly Newsletter
Dear Hypercritics,
As you may know, January 17 will be Blue Monday.
What is known as the most depressing Monday of the year will be an opportunity for us to explore one of the colors that inspire us the most. 🎨
We’ll see how blue has been interpreted by artists from different historical eras, inspired characters, and plots in our favorite stories. And music, of course!🎶
All of this, on the pages of Hypercritic.org 🖊️
