The Lives of the Great Artists was the first truly comprehensive history of art. Originally published in 1550, it remains our greatest source of information about that explosion of artistic creativity in 16th century Italy, the Renaissance. Vasari, himself a painter and architect of renown, was a personal friend of such major figures as Michelangelo and Titian, and his accounts of the lives of his contemporaries have an authenticity and immediacy which is unique. In this selection, 40 of the greatest artists of the period are featured.

Have you always loved reading but sometimes find it hard to find the time? Theres nothing quite like curling up with a good book but many of us cannot do that as much as we would llike. We sacrifice this special time because we have so many other things to do each day. It is a common problem and it is the reason why people on average are not reading as much as they once did. Audio books bring the story to life just as the storytellers of the past did. They allow you to experience the book in a whole new way; in the way the writer felt and heard it in their head. You can feel the emotion when you allow audio books to let the story come to life.
