The criteria for use of color as opposed to black-and-white in Archives' illustrations may seem clear-cut. In practice, however, it is often most difficult to decide whether or not color is indicated. Some conditions which warrant illustrations can be brought out only in color. These present no problem. There are others which can be shown in black-and-white just as well as in color. These also present no problem. But then there are those, constituting the majority, where color embellishes something which could be shown, although perhaps less well, in shades of gray. Is the esthetic aspect sufficient justification for the additional cost and space of color reproduction?
