30,000 Years of Art: The Story of Human Creativity Across Time & Space

An accessible, comprehensive, freshly-updated celebration of the vast range of human artistry from 28,000 BC to today.

Brought completely up to date for this revised edition and now available in a compact new format, this new edition of Phaidon's groundbreaking book presents art differently from all other compendia by revealing the huge diversity – or in many cases, the similarity – of artistic achievements around the globe. Images of more than 600 works from all periods and regions are arranged in chronological order, each with a short text that puts the work in critical context and explains its contribution to the development of art history.
