I probably could have made some money by selling these back to the school, but I love them so much. Some day my children will pull them off the bookshelf and ask me about artwork I won't remember.

I'll make something up, it'll be grand.

Didn't read EVERY page as some periods interest me more than others, etc. Very organized and concise and the pictures are well done on the digital version. (Love that you can zoom in on them quite nicely.)

I wish this had come out early enough for me to use it as a textbook in my Art History course. Easily readable, includes quite a few women artists.

Clear, informative, interesting. My only complaint is how limited the publisher/press is, and how much they enjoy jacking up the prices.
Not something I read voluntarily, but I read every page. It was quite interesting...even if it was for school.
