Adventures in Art: The Secret World of the Aztecs

Adventures in Art: The Secret World of the Aztecs

Ferdinand Anton, Prestel Publishing Ltd - London 2002

Attractively illustrated and presented; good use of graphics (eg useful set of toponyms explaining how place names were formed in Nahuatl)

Sympathetic and rounded contents, a good balanced approach

Just one important mistake: on page 20 it’s suggested that the Aztecs passed through the Toltec capital of Tula in 1168 ‘in their year spent travelling around’. In fact the Aztecs spent over 150 years ‘travelling around’ (till 1325)! And a small proofing error on page 17 where a picture caption is repeated, causing unnecessary confusion.

Recommended.
