This impressively illustrated volume was published in conjunction with the completion of the 9-year restoration of the Sistine Chapel ceiling (which took place from 1980-1989).

Featuring nearly 300 high-quality photographs - This book also includes several scholarly essays that discuss (in great detail) various aspects of Michelangelo's monumental undertaking.
