Notes on Colour Mixing is Back

A recent article on the fantastic Open Culture open resource website (see Best Links at very bottom) has brought Notes on Colour Mixing back to life. In fact, over the past year or so over 8,000 visits have been made here, so it seemed like a good time to come back. See here for the amazing story of a long forgotten colour mixing book, made in 1692 in Holland:
