Snail in Danger (Sid) Nicolaides
A decent compilation of pictures of Cupid, cupids, angels, erotes, etc. I was hoping for something that talked more about the changes in classical winged figures of various kinds over time. But this did have some interesting pictures. I gave it a 3 for those; on the strength of the text I'd only give it a 2. No bibliography.

Said pictures included: The Education of Cupid (Titian version, not the Correggio one), Young Girl Defending Herself Against Cupid (Bouguereau), and Parmigianino's Amor Carvi

I really love this book. It is basically a book of Angel pictures with some descriptions of the pictures. Although I frequently look through it just for the pleasure of it, it is also makes a good reference book on some great angel art.
