    Managing colour from the design stage to the finished product can be a difficult activity as colour perception is subjective and can therefore be inconsistent. Total colour management provides a basic yet comprehensive knowledge on many aspects of textile colour management with industrial applications in mind.

    The book is divided into two parts; measuring colour and managing colour. Chapter 1 introduces the topic by explaining the nature of colour and colour perception. Chapter 2 covers colour specification systems including the CIE system, colour order systems and colour specifiers, it also discusses the difficulties inherent in subjective measurements. Chapter 3 explores instrumental colour measurement; the measurements in terms of diffuse and regular reflectance and transmittance are explained as are the optical configuration and standard or recommended geometrics for making these measurements. Colour quality evaluation is dealt with in chapter 4. In particular, the colour difference formulae CIELAB and those formulae developed after it. Chapter 5 offers a practical guide to visual evaluation of textile samples, discussing various aspects of the visual colour evaluation process including the illuminant, the object, and the observer. In Part Two, chapter 6 discusses the accurate colour simulation on display devices including solid colour and colour samples with texture structures, such as textile fabrics. Chapter 7 explores effective methods of colour communication within retail. A chapter on computer colorant formulation follows and looks at the ways in which computers have advanced methods within the industry. Chapter 9 focuses on the factors that users of digital textile printing technology must take into consideration in order to control the application of colour to digitally printed fabrics. Chapter 10 discusses colour management across the supply chain, and finally chapter 11 concludes with quality assurance management for coloured goods.

    Total colour management proves invaluable for individuals from a variety of disciplines and organisation levels in colour management, colour quality monitoring and evaluation as well as for graphic designers, merchandisers, product development specialists and anyone who uses colour in their work. It is also of use to academics and students researching textiles, fashion, design, fine arts, or any colour related subjects.
