Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Bill and Lorna Hannan (Art for Travellers France) visit extended family in Greece frequently. Those regular trips account for the minute detail of their observations of Greek art as they guide readers, room by room, through dozens of museums and around archaeological sites scattered across Greece. This is a take-with (or study-well-in-advance) guide divided into convenient regions, which the Hannans have dubbed "trails," for exploration, ranging from three in Athens to ones in Delphi, Corinth, Olympia, Thebes, Thessalonike, Crete, and Santorini. For the museums and ancient sites, they also include practical information about hours of operation, admission charges (in euros), transportation options, and suggested times to allot for viewing. The full scope of Greek art, from the earliest civilizations to the Byzantine, is covered and enhanced with historical background. Missing, alas, from this excellent guide are city maps to pinpoint the locations of museums and sites. The book does, however, end on a practical note with a comprehensive list of "Other Notable Figures in Greek Art," an extensive appendix of "The Ancient World," a glossary, and an index. A useful addition to academic and public libraries with large art and travel collections.-Janet Ross, formerly with Sparks Branch Lib., NV Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
