Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-6Both of these books present a society's art as a reflection of the history, religion, and sociology of the periods covered, rather than as isolated phenomena. Topics are covered in two-page spreads and the texts are clear and lively. The full-color illustrations, reproductions, and photographs are of excellent quality. Each book contains easy-to-follow instructions to make a project that reflects the art of that culture. Words in bold print are explained in a glossary. Interest boxes highlight additional facts. The indexes make the books useful for reports and the time lines provide glimpses at the eras included as well as the civilizations that populated them. Lists for further reading suggest relevant histories, but no other sources about art. Egyptian Art describes how a religious belief in an afterlife was responsible for the development of art and scientific advances, including the vast pyramids. Hieroglyphics, painting techniques, relief art, sculpture, and buildings are also covered. Prehistoric Art is defined as art that serves as a form of written communication when a people have not yet developed an alphabet. Sections focus on materials and methods, pottery, and the prehistoric art of the Pacific, Africa, and North and South America. These books are attractive, informative, and enjoyable.Marcia W.
