Buy books & catalogues online
4 December 2014
A selection of books, including the catalogue from the current exhibition Art & Soul: Victorians and the Gothic, are now on sale through the Devon Museums website.
Devon Museums.net was established with support from RAMM to give Devon’s many museums a web presence, all on the same site. The online sales facility means that even the smallest museums can now engage in e-commerce. Participating museums include Topsham, Dawlish, Tavistock, Combe Martin, Sidmouth and Lyn & Exmoor museums.
Art & Soul: Victorians and the Gothic
Written by exhibition curators Joanne Parker and Corinna Wagner from the University of Exeter, Art & Soul: Victorians and the Gothic focuses on the impact of Victorian Medievalism in the South West of England and explores how the movement forged local identity and a sense of community. Costing £12.95, it is also available at RAMM’s Garden reception.
From collections to cookery
Other books from RAMM include Collecting Stories, an illustrated guide to RAMM’s collections, catalogues from earlier exhibitions and the world cultures collections, a recipe book and a guide to St Nicholas Priory. The most popular books include Into the Light: French and British paintings from Impressionism to the early 1920s, West Country to World’s End: The South West in the Tudor Age and Exeter’s Fine Art.
