As with the other titles in this series, this comprehensive book packs a lot of information into a slender volume. These books are great for providing enough detail so that one can become familiar with the subject. I like the clear typeface, numerous full-color photographs, and the many sidebars. Even the size of the book and the quality of the paper make this one worth owning. A pleasure to read, with a wealth of information and a great array of artwork. Great intro to the artist. Recommended!

Even those who are not interested in art know TOULOUSE-LAUTREC, he has become universal.Yes he is the guy who used to hang around bordellos and the MOULIN-ROUGE will always be associated to him.ARISTIDE BRUANT and YVETTE GUILBERT two popular FRENCH singers were immortalize by him.TOULOUSE-LAUTREC was never interested in doing landscapes, he was mostly a portraitist who had fun as a caricaturist of his society LA BELLE EPOQUE.The book summarize his life the way it should be and has some useful documents that makes it interesting.

I prefer the smaller size of this book (compared to "coffee table" editions). Even though it is a practical size, the reprinted art is vivid and does not suffer from the smaller pages. Also this book is really informative (not alot of meaningless art jargon and expert opinions) like so many of those coffee table books suffer from.
