Book Review: Michelangelo (25)

Michelangelo (25)

Taschen published two books on Michelangelo this year. One is this 96-page hardcover to celebrate Taschen's 25th anniversary. The other is the 388-page hardcover titled Michelangelo - Life and Work.

The photos in this book are very beautiful. They cover the main works of Michelangelo: the marble sculptures, the fresco paintings at Sistine Chapel and some sketches. Since this book is rather thin, there aren't any multiple angle shots of the sculptures or the entire Sistine Chapel ceiling. But of those that are included, they are really great. The pictures and in high resolution and colours are wonderfully reproduced. The art is brilliant, needless to say.

The commentary is an interesting read, touching on Michelangelo's life and the work that are featured in this book.

It's a wonderful book at an attractive price. However, if you feel like you want more, which you probably would, you should get Michelangelo - Life and Work.
