Free Books from the Metropolitan Museum of Art

I love to research my latest and greatest book topic.  Ferreting out treasures is a treat but it is a treat that can get expensive fast.  Fortunately, if my topic involves art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art has made 422 of their books available for free download here at MetPublications.  Yes, you can still buy the print copy for many of the titles but you can also download an e-copy for free.  Given the fact that my current bibliography is up to 145 and counting, this could mean a huge savings when it comes to ordering books that aren’t available through the library.

The books that immediately caught my eye included:

  • Al Andalus: the Art of Islamic Spain ($175.00 POD)
  • Along the Riverbank: Paintings from the CC Wong Family Collection ($100 POD)
  • The Armored Horse in Europe
  • The Art of Illumination
  • The Art of Ancient Egypt

You can either browse the catalog as I did or search by topic or key word.  The offerings are diverse including books on a wide range of topics. Take some time to browse and you may find a little not-so-light reading to illuminate your evenings.
