Stolen : The Gallery of Missing Masterpieces Hardback
This is an overview of the booming business of art theft and a look at more than 200 of the world's missing masterpieces - paintings, sculptures, and artefacts which have disappeared and are not likely to be seen in public again.
Filled with wonderful images, notes about why the pieces are important and descriptions of the circumstances in which the works were taken accompany each picture.
The result is a fascinating look at the world of art theft and the masterpieces that have been lost.
Julian Radcliffe, the head of the Art Loss Register in London, has been the consultant adviser on this important project.
