Iceland’s got fantastic eruptions going on right now.

With four active volcanoes ready to blow this could be the beginning of something much larger.

This prelude is dramatic enough.

See video footage here.

The image above graphs Blurb’s ICC profile inside sRGB.

Graph Blurb’s new ICC profile and you’ll find something interesting. Blurb’s printers exceed SWOP (standard web offset presses) and they exceed sRGB in cool blues and yellows. What this means is you’ll get the most saturated color if you convert your Adobe RGB 1998 or ProPhoto RGB files into the Blurb color space rather than into sRGB. (Note you won’t get this is you convert sRGB files to the Blurb color space because you’ve permanently lost some saturation by going to sRGB first.)

The image below graphs SWOP inside Blurb’s ICC profile.
