Attracted by the simplicity and clarity of his writing, readers of all ages and backgrounds have found in Professor Gombrich a true master, who combines knowledge and wisdom with a unique gift for communicating his deep love of the subject.

Updated with a stunning new cover and a preface written specially by Professor Gombrich’s granddaughter Leonie, this pocket format allows Gombrich’s classic work to continue its triumphant progress for another generation, and to remain the title of first choice for all newcomers to art and its history.
