The Good Book Guide
'... beautifully designed'
Frank Whitford, The Sunday Times
'Anyone looking for the most readable survey of the history of art from the [sic] cave paintings to the 20th century should buy the new, beautifully produced pocket edition of The Story of Art, still one of the great classics of art criticism.'
'Phaidon, the book's publisher, has managed to give downsizing a good name by printing 'Story of Art' in a pocket edition...the pleasing proportions of this edition are a marvel of compactness.’
The Boston Globe
'There is something seductive about holding all of art history in one hand, and the designers have pulled it off.'
