Good. 4to-over 9¾"-12" tall 0853313075 Trade Paperback Trade Paperback. Browning to back cover and spine. Worship is the third book in the Art and Society series. The aim is to show something of the role that art plays in the major concerns of human life. We are used to thinking of art as something rarefied-perhaps even as something distant from everyday existence. But the great majority of works have a far more immediate kind of purpose. This does not mean that they are trivial. Indeed, they represent that part of culture which is most active in the minds and imaginations f ordinary people. The Art and Society series attempts to give an answer to the question 'what use is art? ' It does not do this in any theoretical way. Instead, each book illustrates the things that people actually have made and used so that the range of activities is at once obvious. Illustrated throughout. (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. academic and scholarly books and Modern First Editions, and all types of Academic Literature. )
