Full description for Ancient Egypt and the Afterlife
Scala are proud to introduce the new, informative and visually exciting 4-fold series that brings a fresh and unique perspective to illustrated publishing. With pages that fold out horizontally and vertically and an accessible small format, 4-folds accompany exhibitions, highlight collections, explore cities and delve into icons of art history - all at an affordable retail price. Cleverly utilising the interactive 4-fold format, this book opens the tombs of Egyptian pharoahs and sheds light on the ancient fascination with the afterlife. Magnificent objects from Cairo and Luxor museums, including mummy coffins, monumental and small-scale sculpture, papyri, painted reliefs, jewellery and other funerary objects are used to illustrate the concept of the afterlife, as it is described in The Book of the Dead. The reader accompanies the groundbreaking, multi-media exhibition opening at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C. in April 2002, and then travelling to other major venues for the next five years.
