4.0 out of 5 stars A Solid Reliable Classic, March 30, 2000
This review is from: Minoan and Mycenaean Art (World of Art) (Paperback)
Every ancient culture needs a work to survey and catalogue its art, to provide a background against which more detailed studies can be done, and to provide a general base of knowledge for interested laypeople and beginning students of the culture. This book succeeds admirably in this mission; it is organized, thorough, does not assume much preliminary knowledge of these cultures, and even has color pictures. My only quibble with it is that few of the artifacts have their dimensions listed in the captions; those are given in the List of Illustrations in the back of the book, and only one number is given. This makes it harder to translate a photograph into a mental image of the object in question. That said, this is an excellent book, one of the first I bought when I began stocking my personal library of archaeological books.
