The Munsell Book of Color includes one volume with over 1300 permanently mounted matte Munsell colour chips. The matte chips are permanently mounted to keep them clean longer. Matte chips are more susceptible to dirt and oils from handling. But you can still obtain 8.5" x 11" sheets of any colour from the matte collection.
Munsell Book of Color, Matte Edition includes many colours from the glossy book of colour, but in a softer, matte finish. It’s not always easy to visualise how your palette will look on the final product. Size, proportion and other variables affect the way your palette will look. Munsell can help with larger 8.5" x 11" colour sheets. Any colour chip from the books of colour can be accurately reproduced in the larger format.
