The Agnese-Re book is organized by site, which I found much more helpful since this will be my first trip to Egypt. I loved the book Ancient Egypt Art and Archeology so much that I gave my copy away as a gift, but wanted another one for myself.

The Agnese-Re book is organized by site, which I found much more helpful since this will be my first trip to Egypt. It helped me decide what I really want to see at each site. It is exactly the right level of information, and the photos are fantastic. Reading it is like taking a trip to the important Egyptian archeological sites.

Thrilling images combined with original text describe the myriad facets of a colorful and surprising land which the Ancients appropriately called "The Red and the Black," evoking the sharp contrast between the red of the scorching desert wastes.

This is a beautiful book. As a fan of books on ancient Egypt, I have seen many and been disappointed by repeated use of the same photos over and over in a number of publications. In contrast, this book contains many wonderful fresh photos and little seen artworks. Also, I am impressed by the printing job which resulted in very clear and crisp reproductions. This is now one of my favorite books on ancient Egypt.

I had been ploughing through the Silverman book on Ancient Egypt for weeks when a friend lent me this one. I just finished it and found the pictures spectacular and the organization very helpful. In addition to hundreds of very rich and colorful depictions of tomb paintings, it includes breathtaking aerial views of some of the larger sites. I ordered my own copy immediately.

Both are very interesting but in different ways. The Silverman book is organized by topic, and it does have a lot more detailed information. The Agnese-Re book is organized by site, which I found much more helpful since this will be my first trip to Egypt. It helped me decide what I really want to see at each site.

This is primarily a picture book featuring a number of Egypt's archaeological wonders. There are, however, also brief written descriptions and explanations of some of the major sites in Egypt.

The pictures are fine. (I wonder, though, if other books don't provide much of the same material.) The writing and editing, on the other hand, are quite poor. The site descriptions are rather dense reading, but strangely fail to convey much information. The writing style, such as it is, appears to change - rather jarringly - on several occasions. Perhaps most troubling in a book of this sort, however, it is often difficult to match the photos with their intended captions. This is not a high quality resource. Though I have not examined what other Ancient Egypt resources are available, I am quite certain you can do better.
