Is there any good book that would go to details about (monitor) calibration? I mean details like why would one use L* response curve vs. gamma or sRGB response curve, differences between lut-based vs. matrix-based profiles, when to use them, under what circumstances to use v.4 profiles, how to spot and resolve issues etc. etc.
in many cases you can just read helpfiles for a calibration software, like this one for a GUI frontend for Argyll = http://dispcalgui.hoech.net/#quickstart
in fact it is not that much worse than any book
