" - The story is told in a clear and fluent narrative that covers the entire world and the whole of human history in a well-planned sequence of 21 chapters - The Story of Architecture brings understanding and insight for those who have encountered the world's architectural heritage in their travels or through the media, and seek to explore it further - " Perspective " - a book that has already become seminal among students of architecture - there is not much that the distinguished professor misses, as he roams the architectural world, asking, "why is it like this?" The Times Literary Supplement " - required reading for anyone interested in the evolution of a noble art form. ..The story is told in a clear and fluent narrative which covers the entire world and the whole of human history. That is some achievement. ..the author draws on hid own architectural experience to inspire the reader to enter the mind of the architect - " The Yorkshire Evening Press "Nuttgens proceeds on two fronts. First - this is a signal strength - he writes with an architect's sense of how buildings are actually built, how they manage to stay up; he gently leads the reader through a crash course - in the fundamental principles of construction. He is also industrious in describing the social and political context within which building took place - This book is a treasury of facts - " The Tablet "Patrick Nuttgens' The Story of Architecture has taken honours among introductory architecture texts since its publication. - Along with an excellent bibiography, the book boasts all the appurtenances desirable in such a work - time lines, maps, and thumbnail biographies of 125 historic and contemporary architects. - Nuttgens avoids the jargon of the trade, proving - again - that plain old English is perfectly capable of describing complex creations, evolutions, architects and buildings. - more than 400 well-chosen and expertly reproduced illustrations - In an era when so much writing on architecture is either diatribe or gibberish, Nuttgens' approach is a relief. His account is comprehensive, cosmopolitan, judicious, and generous. " World ArchitectureCríticas:

Library Journal 'this comprehensive look at Western art from prehistoric times on up to the present has been completely redesigned and extensively revised and updated.' Booklist 'Enjoy the most famous book on art ever published ... This has been revamped for the first time since 1972, offering larger illustrations, more color, and improved text and coverage.

Descripción Phaidon Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2007. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 16th Revised edition. 244 x 175 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Story of Art, one of the most famous and popular books on art ever written, has been a world bestseller for over four decades. Attracted by the simplicity and clarity of his writing, readers of all ages and backgrounds have found in Professor Gombrich a true master, and one who combines knowledge and wisdom with a unique gift for communicating his deep love of the subject. For the first time in many years the book has been completely redesigned. The illustrations, now in colour throughout, have all been improved and reoriginated, and include six fold-outs. The text has been revised and updated where appropriate, and a number of significant new artists have been incorporated. The bibliographies have been expanded and updated, and the maps and charts redrawn. The Story of Art has always been admired for two key qualities: it is a pleasure to read and a pleasure to handle. In these respects the new edition is true to its much-loved predecessors: the text runs as smoothly as ever and the improved illustrations are always on the page where the reader needs them. In its new edition, this classic work continues its triumphant progress tirelessly for yet another generation, to remain the title of first choice for any newcomer to art or the connoisseur.
