Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great textbook which reads wonderfully and has a variety of informative maps and other graphics. It tapers out and only spends a single chapter on Hellenistic art, about which you can sense the author is not the biggest fan. Other than that, a great art history reference.

Format: Paperback
Used as a textbook for Ancient Greek Art. There's a heavy emphasis on pottery, as that's the author's specialty. The chapters are broken into style periods and there are case study chapters pertaining to that particular period following the general chapter. It's a well written book and not a "snoozer" the some art history books have a tendency to be.

Book came on time. I had to get it for a class but I realize that it has a lot of good information and will do nicely as a introduction to Greek art and archaeology for beginners.
