The cover of the book came off immediately after purchasing it. In fact, it was the first time I opened the book. Just needs better binding.

Poor quality black and white images that are to small to be of any value. If the image's were any smaller you might mistake them for a smug.

A concise and condensed summary of art. Colored with the author's humorous writing and clear logic.

After both my daughters had read Gombrich's A Little History of the World, I bought The Story of Art for my 14 year old daughter, who is now half way through it only two weeks later. The Little History is written for the younger reader but it provides an informative and entertaining overview for adult readers as well. The art book is actually a college-level text, but because Gombrich is a natural educator who relates directly to his reader, the overview is both fascinating and easy to follow.

My comment regards the pocket edition. The value of the book in general is widely known. But I was amazed by the splendid pocket edition. It is very handy, has very thin pages for the text and the images are all in the last section of the book. The letters are not too smal. There are two bookmarks, one for the text and one for the images which is very useful and cuuute at the same time. A handy guide in a handy size.

This book may look intimidating, but it's an easy read that was enjoyed by myself as well as my 7th and 9th graders.
