Description
Although most books about Egypt focus on its treasures of the ancient civilization, this one looks at the monuments and pyramids in the context of Egypt today, a crossroads of Asian, African, Middle Eastern, and Mediterranean cultures. Isabella Brega gives us an abundantly illustrated tour of the country—nearly every two-page spread includes a large color photo and several smaller ones, and some photos fill two pages. There are plenty of exquisite artifacts and structures here, from the Sphinx to the mask of Tutankhamun, as well as artworks and archival photos depicting Egypt's more recent history, and vivid images of modern Cairo and the timeless Nile.
