LOVE THIS BOOK
"The Daily Book of Art" is an informative and entertaining book that is meant to be read over the period of a year. It is full of short readings and lessons covering a range of subjects from the psychology of color to aesthetic philosophy to the debate on whether animals really can paint.
There are 10 discussion categories; Art 101, Philosophy of Art, Art Through the Ages, Profiles in Art, A Picture's Worth 200 Words, Art From the Inside Out, Art From Around the World, Artistic Oddities, Unexpected Art, and Step-By-Step Exercises.
If you love art but don't have a lot of time for it, this is the book for you. The daily snippets will enlighten and delight. And it comes with a ribbon bookmark so you can keep track of your reading. I liked it so much I devoured more than one reading a day and finished it in 3 weeks!!
