Hi,

This might be a bit out of place, but I'm looking for good books on Color Grading.

Any tips? Is there any "Bible" out there?

Alexis' Color Correction Handbook is now in its second edition. Also good is Hurkman's follow-up, Color Correction Look Book: Creative Grading Techniques for Film and Video, which goes into detail on specific looks within scenes. It's not cheap ($35), but it's cheaper than buying a bunch of hokey so-called "LUTs" on the web, plus it'll help you understand how the look was built and when it's appropriate.
