Presenting an entirely fresh way of looking at art, this book is an invaluable resource for reference and inspiration in every home, school, library or studio. Ideal for anyone new to art, it also serves as a visual sourcebook for teachers and designers, and will be a constant source of stimulus and delight for anyone wishing to look at art in a new light.

Now published in over 20 different languages and also in mini, midi and hardback formats, it has received rave reviews from countless newspapers and magazines and has made many appearances on the bestseller lists. Complemented by The 20th Century Art Book and The American Art Book, its unique approach brings art to life, in all its magnificent diversity.
