Default Anyone for Rice Krispies?

"This last week I discovered the magazine printing industry is about to adopt the first printing standards in North America, which use objective color measurement standards. The next release of SWOP (Specifications for Web Offset Publications) will use CIELab measurements. I dreamed of this while working in the industry. I hope that SNAP (newspapers) and GRACOL (commercial printers) will follow. (Yes, you read correctly. The names of the standards organizations in the printing industry are SNAP, GRACOL, and SWOP.)"

- from an article on colour management in the Luminous Landscape. This first part discusses the history of colour in relation to printing practice, but will go on to give some practical hints in future weeks, so it says.
