The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Online Publications Index

2:31 PM

As many of you may know, The Metropolitan Museum of Art recently started a wonderful new program where they are putting the full text of many of their out of print publications online FOR FREE. This is such a wonderful resource for anyone with even a passing interest in art and art history. For the benefit of us fashion historians, I've made an index of titles that might be useful. I'll continue to add to this over time. Enjoy!
