Galleries, great paintings and fashion statements

Advantages: Superb coverage of the field and all its aspects in one small volume
Disadvantages: Being really picky, a few artists omitted who might have been included

We will never run short of well-illustrated and informative general books on art. But in a crowded field, this compact, handy and comprehensive volume will take some beating. The book The 30 or so preliminary pages are taken up with a section on ...

Agnetha is Godess of Pop

Advantages: Lots of Pictures
Disadvantages: Bad English
