$30per item25% Off


An accessible, comprehensive, freshly-updated celebration of the vast range of human artistry from 28,000 BC to today Brought completely up to date for this revised edition and now available in a compact new format, this new edition of Phaidon's groundbreaking book presents art differently from all other compendia by revealing the huge diversity – or in many cases, the similarity – of artistic achievements around the globe. Images of more than 600 works from all periods and regions are arranged in chronological order, each with a short text that puts the work in critical context and explains its contribution to the development of art history. Conceived and edited by Phaidon Editors.

We work with the world's most influential authors to produce innovative books on art, photography, design, architecture, fashion, food, travel, and illustrated books for children that represent the very best in design, quality, and taste. Phaidon's beautiful illustrated books are treasured worldwide for their outstanding content and award-winning production. In October 2012, Phaidon came under new ownership and its new senior management team began the task of growing the company for the long term as the world's leading publisher of books in the visual arts, food, and children's markets. Publishing successes in subsequent years expanded the growing art program to include books made in collaboration with the global superstar Rihanna, NIKE, photographer Annie Leibovitz, fashion designer Sir Paul Smith, the streetwear brand Supreme, and Cecily Brown, one of many cutting-edge artists in the company's iconic Contemporary Artists Series. More recently, Phaidon has successfully added interior design to its core publishing categories. Phaidon now operates a global sales and distribution network, selling in over 100 countries and publishing books in English, Chinese, French, Spanish, Japanese, and German, and with an increasing number of publishing partners in further languages.
