Explore the reissued Janson and experience the history of art
Janson’s History of Art: The Western Tradition, Reissued Eighth Edition presents the same content as the text’s Eighth Edition, published in 2010, now reimagined for digital learning via REVEL, and also available through the Pearson Custom Library. While remaining current with new discoveries and scholarship, the Reissued Eighth Edition maintains its focus on the object, its manufacture, and its visual character, and continues to consider the contribution of the artist as a key element of analysis. Throughout, the authors engage students by weaving a compelling narrative of how art has changed over time in the cultures that Europe has claimed as its heritage.

Also available with MyArtsLab®
MyArtsLab for the Art History Survey course extends learning online, engaging students and improving results. Media resources with assignments bring concepts to life, and offer students opportunities to practice applying what they’ve learned. And Writing Space helps educators develop and assess concept mastery and critical thinking through writing, quickly and easily. Please note: this version of MyArtsLab does not include an eText.

Janson’s History of Art: The Western Tradition, Reissued Eighth Edition is also available via REVEL™, an immersive learning experience designed for the way today's students read, think, and learn.

For enrollments of at least 25, the Pearson Custom Library allows you to create your own textbook by combining chapters from best-selling Pearson textbooks and by adding your own content, such as a guide to a local art museum, a map of monuments in your area, your syllabus, or a study guide you've created.  Priced according to the number of chapters, a custom text may even save your students money.
