Winsor & Newton was acquired by a larger firm a couple of years ago (I
forget which, but a familiar name corp) and to maximize profits (ie, pay
for the acquisition + bonuses for CEO +trustees) is cutting all but its
best selling colors.

However, it's been 15 years since W&N was paint of choice for gum, at
least in the US, so whatever book that came from, it needs an upgrade.
Try Daniel Smith, which IME is superior (& considerably cheaper gram for
gram) all down the line.
