    AdobeRGB versus ISOcoated_v2-eci

    Gernot Hoffmann Level 3
      I'm referring to an inquiry about a comparison between
      AdobeRGB and ISOCoated (in a thread nearby).
      This can be found now here for the actually recommended
      CMYK space ISOcoated_v2_eci.icc (2008), p.26 to p.34:

      It's obvious, that AdobeRGB is rather good for further
      conversions into this CMYK space.

      It's also obvious, that the nice & smooth gamut boundaries
      as found in programs like ProfileMaker5, are somewhat
      fictitious.

      More insight - beyond 'bigger gamut = more pleasant' -
      can be found in the excellent book by
      Jan Morovic (with a-acute and c-caron)
      Color Gamut Mapping
      Wiley, 2008

      In his PhD thesis (ten years ago) I found this nice motto:
      Time wounds all heels (Groucho Marx).
