For the second time today we report on the Metropolitan Museum of Art, only unlike the first post, this item brings you good tidings of great joy.
The Met began uploading digital versions of its publications, many of them rare and out-of-print exhibition catalogs, a couple of years ago, but it continues to add to the online collection, and also includes the series 82nd & Fifth “which asks one hundred curators to talk about one hundred works that changed the way they see the world.” At this point just the number of available books and catalogs nears the 500 mark.
The site, MetPublications, “is a portal to the Met’s comprehensive publishing program with 1,500 titles, including books, online publications, and Bulletins and Journals from the last five decades.” All free for downloading and browsing. Merry Christmas.
