Lippmann Color Reproduction
  DOI :  10.2352/CIC.2002.10.1.art00003  Published OnlineJanuary 2002

Lippmann color photography is the only process known to record physically the spectral composition of any light distribution. It can be regarded as a precursor of Fourier spectroscopy or simply as a physical process for the memorization of colors. The method is described and revisited to explore its scientific impact, and the technical challenges that infer with its realization. The implication of its cultural vigor and the formidable longevity of Lippmann photographs are also described.
