a Must have for the Egyptophile!
This book and its CD-Rom companion are a priceless tool. Inside you will find no information on Ancient Egypt, but more pictures than you might know what to do with. All 372 pictures are high quality, 600 dpi images, some of which include obscure gods. The Clips art is copy right free and limitless in possibilities, Examples are: printing out or photocopying an image, which can be used to trace designs for décor. The Pictures print out at only a few inches, however the 600 dpi scans are easily resized in to coloring book pages for kids. They even work brilliantly as web graphics. Though they will need resizing for web use. The images as they come on the CD-Rom will be too large in both pixels and file size for reasonable web use. Some of the captions under the pictures may be wrong, and the majority of the pictures seem to be taken from Adolph Erman¿s ¿Life in Ancient Egypt¿. This book retails at $9.95 and it is the best $9.95 I have ever spent. The Benefits of this book and CD-Rom make any drawbacks undetectable.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
