The Munsell Color System
It is natural for the reader of this pamphlet to believe that a color system of such relative accuracy and precision as the foregoing is too difficult for application to the color problems of daily life. This feeling, however, is wholly the result of the rudimentary condition of color knowledge. The system and its application are intrinsically simple. If the beginner simply strives for relative accuracy, he will attain quite pleasing results. For such preliminary study it may be helpful to keep in mind the following few suggestions.
* Area may be measured in three ways:
(a) Place transparent graph paper over a colored design and count the number of squares imposed upon the various colors. The number of squares is a measure of the Area of each color.
(b) Provided that the design is on a paper of uniform quality, the various colors may be cut and weighed on a scale. The weights will be proportional to the Areas.
(c) Best of all, use a planimeter.
** It must be remembered that this formula is only an approximation.
