One of my colleagues perfectly described this as walking through a museum, with a friend who's also an Art Historian.
It's so true - it delves into many well known styles, and pieces we think we know but have so much to learn it their fascinating historical factoids. After you read it, you feel a smarter - a super erudite experience!
It's explanation of trends in art, readability, and unique style reminded me of how Cork Dork illustrated the wine industry in a conversational way.
A wonderful personal exploration or universal gift indeed.
