Building ICC Profiles - the Mechanics and Engineering, 01/2000

Dawn Wallner, Sun Microsystems

    A book written in 2002 to aid ICC profile users in reading and writing the tags of profiles. The book dealt only with the mechanics of the getting the data in and out of a profile, not the color science of developing the table data. Much of the material in the book has since been superseded by clarifications to the v2 specification and by the v4 specification, and readers are now recommended to see Color Management (Wiley) for advice on profile building and SampleIcc for sample source code.
