Submission + - Art School's Expensive Art History Textbook Contains No Actual Art (salon.com)

Dr Herbert West writes: An art history book minus the art! Students at Ontario College of Art and Design were forced to buy a $180 textbook filled with blank squares. Instead of images of paintings and sculpture throughout history (that presumably would fall under fair-use) the textbook for ”Global Visual and Material Culture: Prehistory to 1800“ features placeholders with a link to an online image.

A letter from the school’s dean stated that had they decided to clear all the images for copyright to print, the book would have cost a whopping $800.

The screengrabs are pretty hilarious, or depressing, depending on your point of view.
