Book Color

I haven’t completely wrapped my head around the idea of a “Book Color” quiet yet, but it’s been around since CS2.

A Book Color is a spot swatch that contains both CMYK and LAB color values and can use the appropriate color information for better color consistency.

Mordy Golding’s blog post Busting the Myth: achieving consistent color across Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign does a superb job of explaining this. The bit about Overprint Preview is awesome! Go Mordy!
