Color Space tutorials
Color Space Intro Page from Prof. Hoffman - Very informative link for in depth discussions of color space in print, sRGB, and wide gamut systems. Posted on line by Prof.G.Hoffmann, member of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Applied Sciences in Emden, Germany. This is the introduction page. Posted by Dave Corbitt with the permission of the author.
Index of color space documents - More from Prof. Hoffman. This page is an index of extensive documents for color space discussions. Very informative, good graphics explaining 3-D color space in great depth. Posted by Dave Corbitt with the permission of the author.
From Richard Kirk:
I found a reference to Kelly and Judd's Dictionary of Color Names (1955). I think the Kelly is the same one that came up with the color name chart in 1935 (this from memory, so the date may be wrong). Anyhow, I did a quick web search and found this...

Open Source Color Management systems
GraphicsMagick provides a set of commandline tools and programming APIs (including C, C++, and Perl) for manipulating, editing, and converting raster and vector images. It is derived from ImageMagick, with the objective of providing a stable code base. Supports DPX and Kodak Cineon formats. Bob Friesenhahn, the maintainer of Graphics Magick, is available on the TIG mailinglist.
