I bought this because I'm an artist and was going through a period of Aztec/Olmec influence. This light, well-colored book has lots of pictures with many different themes, diagrams, textiles, murals, sculpture, etc. An excellent book if you are looking for pictures of art, I was happy with the discussion in the text (although as a non-expert I cannot speak to the quality of the writing, but I found it more than satisfactory).

Great
  • Kegal
This is a great quickie introduction to Pre-Columbian art by a respected expert. Lots of color illustrations, too. Highly recommended.
  • Kazimi
One of the best on the subject.

It came recommended to me by an expert for a museum study group.

Professor Pasztory is a wonderful lecturer with an in-depth knowledge of the subject material. This comes through in her fine book, simply entitled Pre-Columbian Art. The pictures and the comments and descriptions that follow them clearly explain the information in a way that anyone can understand, whether one is a long-time student of pre-columbian art or the first-time viewer of the incredible works. Easy-to-read without being oversimplified, this work is a must-read for anyone with an interest in indigenous lifestyles.
