Format: Hardcover
I just bought this book and I am amazed by the wonderful details you can see in the reproductions of some of the most important frescos by Giotto.
You can see details that you cannot appreciate neither if you go to see them in person.
The only thing is that the pictures of the frescos are taken before the restoration that the Scrovegni Chapel went through in recent years.

Format: Hardcover
The color reproductions in this book of the frescoes in the Scrovegni (Arena) Chapel in Padua depicting episodes in the life of Christ (and the Virgin Mary) are among the most, if not the most, beautiful I've ever seen. Printed on textured and translucent paper, the effect is to allow them to glow with astonishing freshness. The more enlarged reproductions not only allow one to examine the artist's technique, but to appreciate the full expressiveness of face and form. Very moving.

I rate this 4 star because it's not completely filled with Giotto's art but with duplicates of the same art. Because it's Giotto's masterpieces, that's what makes it a great book. Not worth the money, though
