    What excellent taste in books you have patdzon! Chapman now has his well-deserved place on the list. See if you can get the Norman Rockwell by following the instructions below, but if you have trouble I can reupload my copy after Tuesday (I've just used up my month's bandwidth so I'd have to wait till then). It's well worth getting - I remember especially he tells some great tales of studying under George Bridgman at the Art Student's League.


    Batch Downloading

    Do you have a download manager that permits batch downloads already? If you're using Windows you could try Net Transport which I've been using for the last few years. I think it still has a free trial period. There are probably good freeware alternatives around, but some contain adware so do some research.

    Now you need to find the image links. For sites like http://digicoll.library.wisc.edu/ it's very easy - just right click on the image on the web page and go to properties. It's a little tricker for the Digital Library of India. For example for Norman Rockwell's My Adventures As An Illustrator you hopefully found your way to this link:

    http://dli.iiit.ac.in/cgi-bin/Browse...barcode=141286

    and were prompted to save the first tif file. Now you need to get the link to that file - if you're using Firefox you can copy and paste it from the "Properties" window. (Depending on how your preferences are set up this window either pops up automatically, or can be brought up by right clicking on the file in the "Downloads" window).
    This is the link you get:

    http://dli.iiit.ac.in//server25/data2/upload/server8/disk2/PAR_DVD%20S%20_BACKUP_61-120/1951_TO_1960-Cd082/141286_Norman_Rockwell_My_Adventures_As_An_Illustr ator/PTIFF/00000001.tif

    And this is what you need to type into Batch Download window in Net Transport (or similar):

    http://dli.iiit.ac.in//server25/data2/upload/server8/disk2/PAR_DVD%20S%20_BACKUP_61-120/1951_TO_1960-Cd082/141286_Norman_Rockwell_My_Adventures_As_An_Illustr ator/PTIFF/00000(*).tif

    where (*) = 001 to 456


    --------------------------------------------------

    Glad you like the Athenaeum site, grenappels, and glad to here it's up again for that matter. It's a fantastic site but it has a habit of seeming to disappear completely for months at a time, so I'd strongly advise you to get everything you want there while you can.

    THanks! How about Arthur Pope's book on tone relations. Do you still have that? Does the book talk about seeing color values?

    That Pope paper is now hosted on my googlepages site:

    http://djcbriggs.googlepages.com/colourlightandvision

    Pope's papers describe a colour space founded on the system of Denman Ross (see links on the first post of this thread), and show how to use this space to visualize colour relationships under varying illumination, etc. His work is a major inspiration for many of the principles that I discuss on Dimensions of Colour, starting here:

    OK, it' stuck. Should it maybe be moved somewhere besides the lounge?

    Thanks Tristan! I don't mind at all if it's moved - I found it hard to decide where to put it myself, and just went for the Lounge because I thought more people would see it here.

    My pleasure, guys. Just let me know if you find something special and I'll add it to the list.

    The search function, which was kaput for quite a while, seems to be working well now, and I can see quite a lot of new stuff.

    All I know of is Boisbaudran's original paper in French (which I originally obtained from Gallica), if that is any use to you:
