The Art Book: Mini Format

The Art Book: Mini Format presents the same content as the award-winning hardcover edition in a smaller, portable, paperback version. Easy to use, informative, and fun, it's an A-to-Z guide to the greatest painters, photographers, and sculptors from medieval times to the present day.

The Art Book debunks art-historical classifications by throwing together brilliant examples from all periods, schools, visions, and techniques. Only here could Carracci be seen alongside Cartier-Bresson, Duccio be found beside Duchamp, Mondrian be considered with Monet, or Warhol contrasted with Waterhouse.

Each artist is represented by a full-page illustration of an exemplary work, accompanied by an illuminating text on the piece and its creator. The entries are comprehensively cross-referenced. Glossaries of artistic movements and technical terms are included, together with an international directory of galleries and museums to visit.

By breaking with traditional classifications, The Art Book presents a fresh approach to art — an unparalleled visual sourcebook and a celebration of our rich and multifaceted culture.
