    1. Read for a class on the art and architecture of the Gothic. I remember studying the photos carefully - for a test we had to identify churches/period of time they were built based on slides shown to us. Tricky test, but an excellent class that I really enjoyed. Which is why I still have the books some 20 years later.

    2. It's a bit dry in prose, but this is no surprise for an art history book. Nonetheless, it is an informative, and even an inspiring, read. And oh, it contains such pretty, pretty pictures of glorious Gothic paintings and architecture. Recommended for those who (obviously) are students of art history, people who love art history and, well, people who enjoy Gothic art in general.

    3. While I loved looking through the pictures, I didn't walk away understanding the gothic period in greater detail, it's peculiarities, nor how it moved the Romanesque movement forward.

    4. Nice introduction, but mostly focused on Architecture, some beautiful examples of manuscripts and sculpture though.
