Recently I was asked if I could recommend some art history books. I’m always collecting and looking for interesting books, especially art history. I get most of my books from used bookstores, thrift stores, garage sales, flea markets, and sometimes online if I have a specific book in mind. I started my list with general art books that are great if you want to learn about the overview or specific periods, and continued with more specific categories. So, here is the list of some of my favorites, and if you want, let me know what your favorite art history books are!
I’ve already read three books from this pile but back then I didn’t have the money to buy as many books as I wanted so now I go to bookstores with a vengeance. Needful Things and Fools Die were free - outside the store they have a huge cart of FREE BOOKS.
