5.75 / 7.0

This isn’t the kind of book you’ll sit down and read through with your kids, probably. It is, however, the kind of book you’ll look at, together and alone, over and over and over again. There’s so much to see and read and learn, and all that information is presented in simple, stylish, and interactive ways. It’s a great overview of the history of art, and includes tons of artists, works, media, and techniques.
