The art of Mesoamerica : from Olmec to Aztec by Mary Ellen Miller ( Book )
26 editions published between 1985 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 1,890 libraries worldwide
"This guide to the art and architecture of ancient Mesoamerica surveys the artistic achievements of the high Precolumbian civilizations - Olmec, Maya, Teotihuacan, Toltec, Aztec - as well as those of their less well-known contemporaries. Their pyramids and palaces, jades and brightly coloured paintings emerge from these pages as vividly as when they first astonished Cortes's men in 1519." "For the third edition of this work, Mary Miller opens up new windows on the ancient past with readings of Mesoamerican works of art, all the while offering archaeological interpretations. Recent hieroglyphic decipherments provide insights into ancient works, confirming the connections between the Maya and their neighbours. Revised throughout, with special attention to evidence for dating, the new Art of Mesoamerica is the ideal companion for art historians, students and travellers alike."--BOOK JACKET.
Maya art and architecture by Mary Ellen Miller ( Book )
5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,400 libraries worldwide
Miller takes the reader into the art of one of the world's most enigmatic ancient civilizations. From temple to tomb, she explains how and why the Maya made their greatest works. New discoveries at Copán, Tikal, and Palenque--to name but a few--are included, and the author draws on recent decipherments in Maya writing to provide fresh interpretations of Maya sculpture and ceramics. Chapters on Maya architecture and the materials of Maya art set the stage for discussions of the sculpture of different time periods and regions, the famous murals at Bonampak, the dramatic new findings at Cacaxtla, and the painted Maya ceramics of the first millennium A.D. The author has organized the material in new ways, considering the nature of the human form in Maya art, for example, and the role of the hand-held object.--From publisher description.

"Written by leading authorities and including thirteen personal accounts of the latest ground-breaking research, Courtly Arts of the Ancient Maya examines the royal courts and their art in unprecedented depth. Color photographs and specially commissioned drawings reveal a dazzling array of objects that still have the power to engage and astonish observers centuries after their creation." "The book investigates the rise in the importance of the court, its mythical backdrop, the role of women and the place of warfare. The works of artists and scribes - ceramic censers, stucco heads, jade masks, terracotta figurines, stone boxes, and great carved limestone lintels - bring alive the form, texture, and color of their vanished world."--BOOK JACKET.
