What's New in Version 1.1
Updated cover and title; corrected minor formatting issues.
This is a comprehensive guide and worthy of most Survey 2 classes at the college level. I really thank the publishers for putting together a classic Art History textbook with all the advantages of iBooks. Images are click to enlarge, and the system is very conducive to learning and memory. Fonts make longer reading sessions easier on the eyes, and it includes flashcard terms which are well written on a variety of key terms and artists. Consider that a comparable text from one of the large publishing houses is a few hundred dollars, and no more effective than Boundless
