5.0 out of 5 stars simply wonderful!!, 23 Aug. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Splendour of Lascaux: Rediscovering the Greatest Treasure of Prehistoric Art (Hardcover)
I bought this book hoping to have some pictures of lascaux.
There are many, many pictures, very large, high quality images on thick expensive paper, some even 2 pages large, some even 4 pages (pages fold to show the whole sequence in a single picture as long as my desk!) and so wonderful in quality that I was nearly moved to tears, I'm not joking.
There are also many explanationsand maps, not only images, and I cannot imagine anyone could make something better than this book. This is simply the best that there can be.
Five stars 'cause there can't be six.

Daniel

5.0 out of 5 stars A must if you are interested, 19 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Splendour of Lascaux: Rediscovering the Greatest Treasure of Prehistoric Art (Hardcover)
There are several books for the general public where one can find the upper paleolithic art described and illustrated. Two more, to my knowledge, are devoted to this one cave. In comparison, this book is really special. In the first place it surveys the various aspects (from geology to painting and carving tecniques, from subject identification to their distribution in the very different sites within the same cave) with an appropriately accurate "scientific" approach. In the second, that will interest most people, the beautiful illustrations and the graphs are set as to guide the reader throgh a complete visit. It cannot do the impossible, namely surrogate a personal visit to the cave, but it gets you as closer as possible to it.

Beautifully produced book of an extraordinary site. Stunning photography and the text is well suited to the non expert who is fascinated by the circumstances of its creation.

This review is from: The Splendour of Lascaux: Rediscovering the Greatest Treasure of Prehistoric Art (Hardcover)
I purchased this for someone who is very well read on prehistory. They were very impressed with both the text and the amazing pictures in the book. It's a big book so images are clear.

This review is from: The Splendour of Lascaux: Rediscovering the Greatest Treasure of Prehistoric Art (Hardcover)
An excellent, well-presented book, and great value for money. The supplier delivered it well packed and on time - by the dimmest courier on the face of this earth. As I wasn't at home, he scribbled an absolutely illegible message on a card, then went round the back of the house and placed the parcel in a recycling bin. I didn't use the bin and find the parcel for three days. during which the council bin man could easily have called. How stupid can a courier get?
