Last week, I received an e-mail with the following subject:
Discounted books from £2! Learn with the British Museum.
I mean… 2 P O U N D S! 😮 Of course it took me seconds to go to The British Museum Shop Online. Where to find them?
Why to buy them? Because they are so cheap and useful for teaching but, to be honest, this time I’ve just bought them as a treat to myself. My pics were:
Renaissance to Goya: prints and drawings from Spain
Now £10.00 – Was £45.00
I have a passion for Goya and I was also very lucky to see this exhibition so I was really happy to see such discount. The Burlington Magazine said about it: “Well-written and superbly and generously illustrated.” I agree a 100%.
Picasso Prints: The Vollard Suite
Now £5.00 – £10.00 Was £40.00
Another great discount on one of the most famous painters in the planet. I love to see how ideas take form and this book is packed with etchings and sketches about topics that later on had a great influence in his work and especially in his famous Guernica.
Beyond El Dorado: Power and Gold in Ancient Colombia
Now £5.00 – Was £19.99
Recently the TV show Narcos has given a reputation to the country but Colombia was very well known for its power and gold way before Escobar and this catalogue is a great representations of those times.
- There are also more discounted books in the Exhibition Books section. For instance:
- And my last recommendation is:
Shakespeare: staging the world.
It was: £40.00 – Now: £15.00
If you teach English this is a must. As read in the Evening Standard: “Superb…The catalogue should be in every school library in the land. Indeed, every such library should have 20 copies in armour-plated bindings that will survive a century of careless handling. Indeed, I shall go further and suggest that every student of English literature should have his own copy and that the book should never go out of print.”
I had them posted to Spain and the delivery was great, on time and the books were not damaged even in the slightest degree so for that reason I highly recomend The British Museum Shop. ❤️️❤️️❤️️
