An absolutely stunning book on Greek Vases! If you want to find out anything about Greek vases, from the shapes to the techniques of making them to the potters and painters who created them, this is the book for you. It is also lovely to look at, as many of the pictures are in colours, allowing the artwork to show in a way that most books on the subject with their black and white pictures do not allow. Finally, do not let the seemingly small number of pages put you off as it did me for a while, inside is enough information to fill a book four time the size. The only thing I would say is this is not a book if you want a history of how the vases developed or artistic criticism of them, this is a strictly factual book dealing with the objects themselves, their decoration and uses.
