In the pre-internet world, they would have cost you a pretty penny.

The Guggenheim Museum has made more than 200 art books available for free.

Once upon a time owning this impressive a collection of art books would have marked you as an art history major, a book reviewer (free review copies!), or even a phony (does anyone actually ever look at “coffee table books”?).

To peruse the works of Kandisnky, Rothko, Lichtenstein, Klimt, Picasso and more for free, click here.

Vice.com reports that if these 205 works from the Guggenheim leave you hungry for more, you can download to your heart’s content at these other websites.
