    Absorbing read for Egyptian culture vultures

    Recently added this book and its companion volume to my collection of books on ancient Egyptian culture. The writing is engaging and easy for the average person to follow without being talked down to, The pictures
    are also good, though I would have liked to see color pictures in this
    subject matter as the ancient Egyptiand used color in their art to stun-
    ning effect. Both of these volumes would make a fine addition to any collection on the subject.
