Wonderful addition to my collection. One of my best ever Christmas presents. This is a Dorling Kindersley (DK) book in hard cover. It’s 416 pages and measures 20cm wide by 24 cm high. It’s brilliant! The book is encased in a very solid slip cover, which I love, and takes the reader through the ages chronologically from 30,000BC to “1970 Onwards”. Like all DK books the quality is excellent and the colour photographs are beyond brilliant. The book covers eight periods from “Early Art” to “Modernism” and has a good glossary section…
