    I found an interesting book on Digital Color Management.

    I found an interesting book on 'Digital Color Management Principles and Strategies for the Standardized Print Production' on internet which you may interested too.

    Code:

    This book describes color management for the print production with a focus on implementing standards for separation, soft proof, contract proof, data delivery and printing. The basics and strategies are targeted at setting up vendor-independent color management workflows which can easily be realized with leading applications from e.g. Adobe, AGFA, GMG, Heidelberg, Kodak and X-Rite. The author explains with a unique graphical concept how different standards such as ISO 12647, SWOP, GRACoL, G7, ICC profile format and PDF/X fit together. He describes the main points for setting up color management and quality control from the print buyer over photography, agency and pre-press to the printer. The book has a strong focus on communication between print buyer, photographer, agency, pre-press and printers. Based on the best practice in communication it explains the important steps for quality control for digital data, contract proofs and prints.

    I can, I've read both cover to cover several times. RWCM is much much older book, doesn't have anything concerning GRACoL, G7 or anything 'reasonably new' like that. But what RWCM does have is much more detail concerning how printers work, why one would want to have fewer patches or more patches in a profile target, in depth break-down of profile tags & internal components of a profile, etc. & a much more broad range of topics are covered in RWCM.

    But just from the titles of the two books, one can see they really are concerned with vastly different aspects of profile technology & creation. Obviously, with "Strategies for the Standardized Print Production" in the title, one can tell this book is not going to be about scanner or monitor profiles, etc. It is quite specific in it's range of topics covered but everything in the book is accurate when written & still accurate today. And the author explains various ideas & hardware & other subjects quite well.

    Read both this book & RWCM as they aren't covering the same ground & both can contribute very well to expanding one's understanding of ICC colour management.

    thanks for the detailed explanation.

    Thank you for sharing such a wonderful book :) I like how it explains

    No ICC Parameters for the Proof of RGB Data
    Simple Workflow with CMYK Data
    Papers with Optical Brighteners in the Profile Chain

    And other things that were missing or not explained easily in real world color management 2nd edition. I recommend this book for anyone building ICC profiles.

    Even if you talk your way out, you will not change their thinking that all screens shows the same colors...

    Great post!

    I too have read Real World Color Management 2nd Edition, over and over again, cover to cover. At first glance this looks so good I might just have to go and get the wood pulp version (still can't beat real pages in your hands, IMHO).

    Thanks!

    this is good in theory, but it is expensive to execute. moreso, you need to align all people to follow the system!

    Everything is good in theory, isn't it? What you mention is the same for most any process regarding colour management. This book is still quite informative concerning many aspects of profiling in general and printer/press profiling specifically. It could also be used for one's own purposes, to get a better match or try to create more accurate profiles. That's what I use it for.
