| p.1 #2 · Cropping for Art Reproduction Book |
Cropped in the final image in the book but during production it's valuable to see the color reference targets placed next to the uncropped artwork. Did you use control targets when shooting?
I suggest you consult up front with the company which will print it regarding color management and process control. Reproducing art is a potential minefield because the gamut in artist colors can't be matched on a CYMK press and the first thing the client will do is hold catalog next to painting and ask why they don't match. A big part of my jobs as publishing center production manager and director was education of the clients, tempering their expectations regarding how close of a match was physically possible up front so they were not disappointed when they saw the finished product.
