First printed test copy of the book!

Paper version

Two weeks ago I announced my color charts book. And I had no idea how much work I was taking on, hahaha! My idea was a bit like ‘I’ve got all these charts, I’ll just put them together in a pdf, and voilá, there’s my book!’ But making a book, if you want to do it properly, takes time. A ...

Color Charts book – the complete collection

Color Charts Book

When I made my very first color charts for myself to use, early 2016, I couldn’t imagine that I was doing something different than other people who made color charts. But apparently I DID!

Thank you, Any Art Netty
