What is sepia?
The color “sepia” gets its name from the color of the ink of the cuttlefish (a mollusk related to the squid, except that the cuttlefish has a calcified internal shell). “Sepia” is the Latinized form of the Greek word for “cuttlefish”. As a color, sepia ink was often used as writing ink and a drawing material dating back to Greek and Roman times and was in use until the 19th century. Sepia-toned photographs resemble how old photographs have aged and are often used today to convey that aged effect.
