Artforms: An Introduction to the Visual Arts (7th Edition)
on July 15, 2011
The book was a required textbook for my art history class. The teacher approved use of older editions which he said were actually better versions since the information hadn't changed but the layout was better with the pictures provided next to the text rather than having to refer to the pictures from an appendix in the back of the book. The textbook was very well written and the pictures of the art very good quality. However, it was the book itself that deserved a lower rating because as I opened it up for the first time, the pages fell away from the spine as I turned from page to page. So now I am constantly trying to keep the individual pages from falling out of what has become a folder rather than the cover to a textbook. But I paid only 18 cents for the book plus around $8.00 for shipping and handling as compared to the $89.00 the book store wanted for a used copy of the same book. I still think I got a deal!
