MEDIA REVIEWS

"Why buy a mere art book when you could have a museum of your own? A colossal tome that, ranging across continents, periods, and artistic approaches, sets out to compile the perfect collection." -The Times

"In an age when so much information about art is gleaned electronically, this massive tome, with its beautiful reproductions, is a bold assertion of the importance of the printed page." -Art Quarterly

"This tome is chock-full of things you don't often see reproduced on this scale." -The New York Times

"Unprecedented, unique, and vast in scope... a visually spectacular survey of world art. Destined to delight, inspire, and educate, as well as to become an invaluable, classic art-reference resource, it is very highly recommended." -Library Journal
