“This jewel of a book, with its wonderful lavish illustrations, introduces the reader to the private, privileged world of medieval miniature painting and illumination.”
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 complete collection of Prisse d'Avennes's Egyptian plates in a visual feast of symmetry and complexity, mystery and opulence.
A landmark costume history, covering style and dress from antiquity to the end of the 19th century. From French couture to traditional Eskimo attire, top resolution and interactive images of Racinet's beautifully detailed and colored illustrations offer an invaluable reference for students, designers, artists, illustrators and historians.
