“The book includes 180 marvelous color photographs of objects such
as sculptures, funerary objects, jewelry and papyri. Essays
accompanying the plates explore Egyptian kingship and images
illustrating the pharaoh’s connection with various gods. . . .
The plates throughout the book are striking and the

interesting.”—Richard Weigel, Bowling Green Daily News
