The Met’s website offers more than five decades of publications to stuff your hard drive

Every so often, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York (aka “the Met”) adds new volumes to the already generous collection of texts available on its website. In March 2015, about a hundred more titles joined the more than three hundred texts that were already available online, for a grand total of 448 books on art, criticism, history of art, biographies and more, now waiting just to be downloaded and piled on your hard drive, free of charge and 100% legally.

All you need to do is surf around MetPublications, and pick the volumes you want to read. It’s either that or paying from $20 to $200 if you want the hard copy. We recommend patience when you’re surfing the website, because the collection is really extensive.
