Met Museum full text online publications

The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York put online 372 titles, with full-text, from their past publications. You can read them online or download them as PDF.

I am endebted to Richard Byrne and his always interesting Free Technology For Teachers blog for pointing me to this amazing treasure trove.

Below is my personal and very suggestive selection. I encourage you to go the Met Online Publications  website and see for yourself the full catalogue. It will take me a while to read through these…
