In its fourth edition Gilbert's Living with Art won a first-place award for outstanding design and production at the 1995 New York Book Show. The new sixth edition is even more luxurious and beautiful. Not only a book about art, but also an artfully made book, Gilbert's Living with Art has earned a reputation for elegance and the highest standards of quality.

Living with Art supports student efforts to develop an appreciation of art by clearly communicating the ways one can approach various forms of expression - offering a comprehensive introduction to the visual arts from several perspectives: themes and purposes of art, the vocabulary of art, individual art media (painting, drawing, camera arts, sculpture, architecture, etc.), and the chronological history of art. The book is rich with illustrations drawn from a wide range of artistic cultures and time periods.
