Prequel to Pantone

Prequel to Pantone


Have you seen this Colossal post? This is completely amazing! Over 300 years ago (271 years before the first Pantone Color Guide existed), Dutch artist, "A. Boogert" wrote about the use of color in art. In an 800-page book, Boogert describes every color imaginable at the time, and included color swatches as well. This was an incredible find by historian Erik Kwakkel who translated part of the introduction.
