From the ROADS Classics series, which aren't just an enthralling read, they are also beautifully designed works of art featuring individual photographs or illustrations that represent major themes from the stories within. A real treat for all book lovers.
What is Art? What is value? What is good taste? What makes a cultured class? Tolstoy wrestled with these questions for fifteen years, and this book is the result of his fascination with the evolution of art, and its relationship with religion, commerce, and science. As the growing digitisation of our world continues to provide new ways to create and consume art, and raises questions about its quality and its control, What is Art? challenges us to revert to the visceral, the authentic, and to think carefully about how art can shape our collective future.
