Hi Mike,
I was perusing my growing collection of Books I Don't Have Time To Read, and
found the beginning of this very interesting, and given your very nice work on
visualizing color spaces, thought you might find it of interest as well.

Looks like there's lots of chapters of interest to the Community At Large as
well.


Offered by the author free of charge.

Happy reading!

Wow, that book is pretty extensive! Thanks! I have saved it to my 
computer and am skimming through it.

Unfortunately, while I enjoyed math formulas as a youth, I no longer 
have a "head" for it. I would have not been able to create my last 
illustrations for Wikipedia without cheating by having clipka do the 
hard parts for me.

IIRC, I still want to plot the chromaticity diagram in XYZ space, for 
multiple white points. Clipka did this in fact, and rendered several 
movies. But I have given up since I wouldn't even know how to plug the 
equations into my scene if clipka gave them to me.

Thanks again! I will continue to skim through it over the next several days.


Mike
