Pantone has released redesigned versions of its formula guides. The 2005 formula guide is the most substantial redesign of the guides for over 30 years, according to the company.

The new fan books are almost 25 per cent larger than Pantone’s previous books, which the company claims has been done to increase accuracy and visual reference. The new solid chips book also features larger tear-out chips.

Both sets of books have been produced on Pantone’s new printing press, which the company claims has been precision-engineered for improved colour consistency and produces books featuring colours even more accurate than before. Both sets also use a brighter, whiter paper than before that more accurately matches popular paper stocks.

The Pantone formula guide set costs £59 plus VAT for the two book set with coated and uncoated fanbooks, and £79 plus VAT for the three-book set, which adds the matte fanbook. The solid chips book set costs £164 plus VAT for the two book set (coated and uncoated) and £197 plus VAT for the three book set (coated, uncoated and matte).
