Synopsis: In the foothills of the Theban massif in southern Egypt, not far from the Valley of the Kings, lie hundreds of unique and wonderfully decorated tombs from the New Kingdom belonging to the people who served the pharaohs. "The Lost Tombs of Thebes" gives the reader unprecedented and privileged access to a selection of these extraordinary monuments. The beautiful scenes and texts that adorn their walls include some of the most exquisite examples of Egyptian art to be found anywhere in the land of the Nile. Combining scholarship with superb photography, including numerous foldouts, this magnificent volume will bring these lost tombs back into the light and illuminate the mysterious world of ancient Thebes and the nobles who lived and died there in Egypts Golden Age.
Spectacular.... Highly recommended for anyone, general or specialist, with an interest in ancient Egypt.
Exquisitely detailed color photographs of mural and wall carvings record the religious and social scene in Egypt thirty-six centuries ago, as experienced not by pharaohs, but by lesser court figures, viziers, generals, architects, and priests.
A clear and scholarly narrative of the tombs of the officials or nobles of the Pharaohs in the New Kingdom period.... The acclaimed Italian photographer, Sandro Vannini, provides the magnificent large format images in this beautiful book.
The 'book experience' is actually superior to the empirical one, especially when objects and monuments are presented - as they are in these photos - with flawless lighting and minutely focused amazing details.
