The Metropolitan Museum of Art now has some of its publications online.

Maybe I’m rather late to the party, but I just found out about this a few days ago and was thrilled, so I thought I would share.  The Metropolitan Museum of Art, starting this past October, has converted over 300 of its publications to ebooks, and they can either be read online or downloaded at no cost.  For anyone who is writing any type of historical fiction, the books in their collection can help immensely, as they not only explain the art of a specific time period, but also tie it in with what was going on in that part of the world at that time.  I’ve been all over the 18th-century and Napoleonic France publications, as well as some of those dealing with the late Victorian period.  Happy reading!
