Very good selection of books for information on tricolor carbro.

Tricolor carbro prints do tend to have a kind of vintage period look, which comes from the fact that the overwhelming percentage of prints were made for advertising and other commercial purposes. The cost and complexity of the process put it out of the hands of most amateurs, even fairly advanced ones. So the look tends to be very dramatic, with very vivid colors, to attract our attention.
