Amazing Durer Overview 28 May 2014
By Mark F - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a great Prestel publication, printed in high quality in Germany. While it is large it is also quite manageable.

I'm not an expert on the many many Durer books available - I do own a few - but to my eyes the image quality seems very high. The book contains essays by various art experts with well placed and generously sized illustrations.

Last year my wife and I purchased the catalog to the National Gallery (Washington DC) show of Watercolors, Drawings and Prints after viewing that great exhibit. That is a visually stunning book and is also very well printed and laid out. It's one of the most appealing art books I own and it conveys what I saw in person perfectly. I did not think I'd find a book of comparable quality - nor did I think that I'd find a book that would compliment it so well but this new book does the job on both counts.

For people who own a dearth of books on Durer, I can't tell you if this is a must purchase. But for someone looking for a good overview of the artist or if you're an long-time admirer looking to put Durer in his context this is a top notch publication.
