The Art Museum by Phaidon is a massive, monolithic tome of an art book that rivals in size the giant Gustav Klimt volume that I reviewed a while back.
Carefully curated by Phaidon editors with a consulting global team of specialists in all fields of art, the Art Museum contains over 3000 paintings, sculptures, frescos, tapestries, photographs spread across 25 galleries and close to 1000 pages of content – a museum that is open 24 hours a day, every day of the year.
The huge print size of the book really showcase the art work to great effect and makes the reading experience incredibly immersive. The accompanying text offer brief but informative background information on the art pieces.

3000 years of art masterpieces, all at one’s fingertips. If you read it from cover to cover a page a day it would keep you entertained and educated for almost 3 years. My highest recommendations.
