This add-on is comprised of a single Illustrator (.ai) file which includes a complete set of swatches representing the classic Munsell color space*. In addition to the swatches, the file includes layers representing each of the hue, value, and chroma combinations.

I created each color from the Munsell Color Book, utilizing the palette tool at colormunki.com. I obtained the values for the swatches by creating and then downloading the palettes into .CSV files, and then painstakingly created each swatch by entering its name and corresponding L*, a*, and b* values from the .CSV file.

The swatches were created as ”Spot” kind, utilizing the L*a*b* color mode. The color ”space” I used to create the document was Adobe RGB (1998).

To properly view the colors in Adobe Illustrator, choose View --> Proof Setup, and select an output device to simulate. I hope you find this Color Book useful.

To use the swatches in other products, simply export/save the swatch library.

*The Munsell color system is a color space that specifies colors based on three color dimensions: hue, value (lightness), and chroma (color purity).
