A collec­tible volu­me for gra­phic desi­gners and crea­ti­ve entre­pre­neurs, this book is dedi­ca­ted to  Color Libra­ry,  one of the most dis­cus­sed pro­jec­ts in the field of gra­phic design of the last few years. An inves­ti­ga­ti­on into color repro­duc­tion and prin­ting,  Color Libra­ry is a tool for artists, desi­gners, pho­to­graph­ers, and prin­ters. It aims to widen the pos­si­bi­li­ties of color prin­ting, and reflec­ts on our con­tem­pora­ry per­cep­ti­on of color as it is shaped by the recent deve­lop­ments in print pro­duc­tion.

Pri­ma­ri­ly con­cei­ved as a digi­tal plat­form, Color Libra­ry offers a varie­ty of colo­ri­metric pro­files auto­ma­ti­cal­ly app­li­ca­ble to images, based on color com­bi­na­ti­ons gene­ra­ted accord­ing to their per­cep­tu­al, tech­ni­cal, and con­cep­tu­al rele­van­ce. It not only offers an alter­na­ti­ve to stan­dard color prin­ting, but also affirms a dis­tinc­tive visi­on of how to print colors and pro­cess them.

Crea­ted at ECAL/University of Art and Design Lau­sanne,  Color Libra­ry  was laun­ched in 2014. Initi­al­ly deve­lo­ped for expe­ri­men­tal pur­po­ses, the pro­ject was exten­ded in order to crea­te an online plat­form for deve­lop­ment and dis­tri­bu­ti­on. This non­pro­fit web­site has a dual objec­tive: to dis­tri­bu­te an inno­va­ti­ve tool for artists, desi­gners, and prin­ters, and to make stu­dents awa­re of color theo­ry and color management—one of the main fields of con­tem­pora­ry design rese­arch. Among the gra­phic desi­gners and crea­ti­ve struc­tures that use  Color Libra­ry are Åbä­ke, Vitra, Baldinger•Vu-Huu, Edi­ti­on Patrick Frey, Zak Kyes, Isti­tu­to Svizze­ro, Kunst­hal­le Basel, and Nero Publi­shing.

Edi­ted by Maxi­mage, the publi­ca­ti­on docu­ments the dif­fe­rent chro­ma­tic and tech­ni­cal pos­si­bi­li­ties offe­red by  Color Libra­ry  through the use of dif­fe­rent kinds of papers (coated and uncoated), and offers a wide varie­ty of color com­bi­na­ti­ons, from basic colors through metal­lic, neon, and pas­tel. It inclu­des pho­to­graphs by Zurich-based pho­to­gra­pher Shira­na Shah­ba­zi prin­ted in spot color, essays by Emi­ly King and Manon Bruet describ­ing the con­text of the pro­ject and its ambi­ti­ons, as well as an essay by Franz Sigg on the evo­lu­ti­on and stan­dar­di­za­ti­on of print. An appen­dix allows an in-depth under­stan­ding of the  Color Libra­ry color com­bi­na­ti­ons.
