A Book of Every Color (from 1692)

An amazing set of images from Colossal about an artist who illustrated an 800 page book with variations of colors and how to create them using pigment and water, varying both hue and intensity. The original story was posted on the Tumblr of medieval historian Erik Kwakel from the Netherlands and you can see the full book here.
