If you only buy 10 Michelangelo books on Amazon

Christopher Evans
The list author says: "These are, imho, the best books on Michelangelo Amazon has to offer. I will list books with reproductions of his works first, and then other items of interest."
Michelangelo : The Complete Sculpture, Painting, Architecture
Michelangelo : The Complete Sculpture, Painting, Architecture
"The most comprehensive M text on the site. Wonderful reproductions, and a great survey of over 100 articles on M's work selected from a broad range of books and journals"
Michelangelo: Sculptor
Michelangelo: Sculptor
"A great book surveying the sculptures od Michelangelo. The book is filled with very large full page images, and image quality is _stunning_. I first saw/purchased this book in Rome (2000) and could not find it anywhere else, but now it is relatively easy to find. Everyone should own this book."
Pieta
Pieta
"This is one of the best books documenting what I consider to be one of the best artistic works of all time. Hupka took over 1000 photographs of the Pieta when it was on display at the New York World's Fair in 1964. Because of personal connections, he was able to get closer to the statue than anyone has in quite some time. He took photos from every conceivable angle, in all types of lighting."
The Sistine Chapel:  A Glorious Restoration
The Sistine Chapel: A Glorious Restoration
"This is one of the best books you can find (for under 200 dollars) on the restored Sistine ceiling. It has great, large reproductions and the image quality is superb."
Michelangelo: The Last Judgement - A Glorious Restoration
Michelangelo: The Last Judgement - A Glorious Restoration
"Counterpart to the aforementioned book, it has the same quality large reproductions and superb image quality."
Michelangelo Life Drawings (Dover Fine Art, History of Art)
Michelangelo Life Drawings (Dover Fine Art, History of Art)
"This is a one stop shop where you can find many of M's sketches.This is Dover at it's best: a budget book of reproductions that have now entered the public domain. I really respect this publisher for their pricing."
Michelangelo: Life, Letters, and Poetry (Oxford World's Classics)
Michelangelo: Life, Letters, and Poetry (Oxford World's Classics)
"Condivi's text is largely considered M's autobiography.  It was written by Ascanio Condivi, a pupil and friend of M, under his direction. This book also includes many of the M's letters and poetry for a great price."
The Lives of the Artists (Oxford World's Classics)
The Lives of the Artists (Oxford World's Classics)
"Written by Giorgio Vasari, who was a contemporary and friend of M. Lives was printed before Condivi's text, but Varsari published many editions of this famous text, and incorporated much of Condivi in his subsequent editions. Lives is thought to have a much more realistic view of M, though Varsari still does perpetuate some M myths, and holds M in very high esteem."
Michelangelo and the Pope's Ceiling

"This is a great book. A wonderful narrative, and a wonderful read."
Michelangelo's Mountain: The Quest For Perfection in the Marble Quarries of Carrara
Michelangelo's Mountain: The Quest For Perfection in the Marble Quarries of Carrara
"This book is really great. The author wades in deep to sift through most contemporary knowledge on M's time spent in Carrara. It is very informative, and an interesting read."
