This book is gorgeous, I am surprised I am the first to review it! If you are looking for inspiration in your Egyptian studies, graphics, and art this is the book to purchase. There are hundreds of color plates depicting Egyptian rock art, columns, stone carvings, and other tidbits drawn by Prisse. If you always wanted to know what color a Lotus was depicted as, or other such items, this will help immensely. The plates are so beautiful they can be framed as wall art. Inspirational and more!
