Nick Earls is a pretty good writer. I enjoyed his books. Other than the title this post has nothing to do with Nick Earls.
Back when I was redesigning my old blog I was looking for the quintessential coffee colour. You can see the results here. That would have been much, much easier if I’d had this little web tool to help me. All you have to do is upload a picture and it gives you a colour palette complete with hex codes. You can download the palette as a photoshop palette file too. Very useful.
Here’s my colours of coffee series screenshots. The last image does arguably feature the titular 48 shades of brown too. Though some could be better described as shades of black or red.
