Need a tidy desktop art reference that will accommodate your worsening ADD? New from Collins Design is The Collins Big Book of Art: From Cave Art to Pop Art, written by Iain Zaczek, with general editor David G. Wilkins, which isn't really that big at an easy to one-hand 528 pages. But it manages to pack more than 1,000 works of art and 1,200 full-color illustrations in a compact $39.95 hardcover, and its simple two-part format includes an extensive Chronology that spans the history of art, and an equally broad guide to Themes in Art, covering the likes of portraiture, the body, landscape, the city, rural life, still life, animals, religion, mythology, allegory, fantasy and war. The text is also peppered with Turning Points — 25 stories of "the most momentous events in art history," like the Pop Art explosion of 1964. Some spreads from the book are in the PDF.
