One of my spring highlights will be Civilisations , an epic new series from the BBC spanning 31 countries on six continents, and covering more than 500 works of art. Presenters Simon Schama, Mary Beard and David Olusoga will explore African, Asian and American as well as European cultures to explore how human creativity began and developed, how civilisations around the world influenced one another and how artists have depicted the human form and the natural world. Here are some reading ideas to enjoy as you watch. What would your suggestions be?
