The Story of Art, one of the best-known and best-loved books on art ever written, has been a world bestseller for over half a century. Professor Gombrich's clear and engaging text combines with hundreds of full-colour illustrations to trace the history of art in an unfolding narrative, from primitive cave paintings to controversial art works of the present day.
This pocket edition presents The Story of Art in a compact format with an entirely new design, giving Gombrich's classic work a new acessibility and opening it up to an even wider readership than it currently enjoys.

The Good Book Guide '... beautifully designed' Frank Whitford, The Sunday Times 'Anyone looking for the most readable survey of the history of art from the [sic] cave paintings to the 20th century should buy the new, beautifully produced pocket edition of The Story of Art, still one of the great classics of art criticism.' The Independent 'Phaidon, the book's publisher, has managed to give downsizing a good name by printing 'Story of Art' in a pocket edition...the pleasing proportions of this edition are a marvel of compactness.' The Boston Globe 'There is something seductive about holding all of art history in one hand, and the designers have pulled it off.' Art and Auction
