Merrifield did an excellent job of clarifying and identifying the pigments used throughout eons in fresco painting, and a lot more. a wonderful text for research. she compares notes from various manuscripts and narrows down the names applied to pigments. plus various instructions from practitioners of the art in the past and from manuscripts.

I was hoping for larger print and few pictures but over all the book is a great resource on the history of fresco.
