Art: A Visual History is the complete visual guide to Western art, now updated and repackaged in a themed slipcase.
How to tell Impressionism from Expressionism, a Degas from a Monet, early Medieval art from early Christian? Art: A Visual History explains it all — painting, sculpture, great artists, styles, and schools — and will help you answer the question, "What makes great art?"
Art: A Visual History includes:
• More than 650 artists and all the major schools and movements, all arranged chronologically. • Close-up focus on 22 masterpieces, from Ancient Greek sculpture to 1960s Pop Art. • Well-known icons along with lesser-known gems — carefully chosen to illuminate the points made in the text. • Features on major schools and movements to explore and explain their stylistic trademarks, characteristics, and favored subjects.
Art: A Visual History is a knowledgeable, thought-provoking, and accessible tour of the creators of Western art.

I found out about Playster in the New York times and I'm very happy about it: “One of the newest contenders in the crowded field, a company based in Montreal called Playster, offers music, games, TV shows, movies and e-books through its service. Playster recently struck a deal with HarperCollins to include 14,000 backlist books in its service.”
I stumbled upon Playster 2 months ago. I've upgraded to a premium membership already. The platform now carries audiobooks from: Simon & Schuster, Macmillan, HarperCollins UK, Recorded Books, Tantor, and Highbridge. HarperCollins US titles are already in the library. Great service.
