The Good Book Guide, London
One of the first European explorers to fall obsessively in love with the realm of pyramids and pharaohs, Emile Prisse d’Avennes made an outstanding contribution to Egyptology with his illustrations of Ancient Egyptian architecture, sculpture, paintings, and industrial arts. This world premiere brings together the collection of Prisse d'Avennes's Egyptian plates in a visual feast of symmetry and complexity, mystery and opulence.
