Reader's note

Add a dash of blue to the bookshelf with this vintage Pelican art deco collection--a gem among a bounty of out of print rare books and stunning vintage Penguin books on our 2nd hand bookstore! 'The oldest known art comes from the Upper Palaeolithic period and dates roughly from between 20,000 and 10,000 BC. Before the Upper Palaeolithic, and much earlier, were the Middle and Lower Palaeolithic periods, but from these no works of art have been preserved - unless we regard stone implements as works of art. This does not mean, however, that no art existed then. Plastic works in anything but the hardest material would inevitably have decayed.'
