ArtCurious is a colorful look at the world of art history, revealing some of the strangest, funniest, and most fascinating stories behind the world’s great artists and masterpieces. Through these and other incredible, weird, and wonderful tales, ArtCurious presents an engaging look at why art history is, and continues to be, a riveting and relevant world to explore.

A wry look at what the astonishing world of animal penises can tell us about how we use our own, and challenges the toxic message that the penis makes the man. With tales from the animal kingdom, Phallacy shows where humans fit on the continuum from fun to fatal phalli and why the human penis is an implement for intimacy, not intimidation. This audiobook includes a downloadable PDF that contains illustrations from the book.

John Jeremiah Sullivan spent two years journeying from prehistoric caves to the Kentucky Derby in pursuit of what Edwin Muir called “our long-lost archaic companionship” with the horse. The result—winner of a National Magazine Award and named a Book of the Year by The Economist magazine—is an unprecedented look at Equus caballus, incorporating elements of both memoir and reportage.
