Read in January, 1998

Accessible introduction to the artworks of Ancient Greece, from the Minoans until the end of the Classical Age. It's comprehensive, but not hugely detailed, and parts of it have been superseded by later scholarship (it was first published in the mid-eighties); I would also have liked it if a higher percentage of the generous illustrations had been higher resolution and in colour. It's still useful, though, particularly for those not familiar with the area/for younger readers.
