In the prospect of doing a Google Summer of Code project about 
integrating color management into X11, I'd like to start reading about 
that subject to have at least a more in-depth knowledge about the 
science around colors. When I order the books now it will take about two 
weeks until they arrive and I'd like to at least look through them 
before LGM (which is 8-11 May).
