While the number may seem modest at first, consider the average art book’s volume and amount of content, illustrations included, in each of those tomes. This means that instead of having to go to a used books store, amazon or a local library that may or may not have a particular title in its collection, you can now access these invaluable resources for free and in the convenience of your own studio/living room, art gallery/coffee shop.

Le Met frappe encore un grand coup : après avoir mis sa banque d’images en libre téléchargement, il propose désormais 425 — et le chiffre augmente constamment — livres d’art en ligne. Toute reproduction est interdite, mais le document source est à portée d’un clic.
