Review Text

Using the latest computer-imaging technology, the ancient Papyrus of Ani (one part of what is now collectively known as the Book of the Dead) is painstakingly restored to its former glory in this large-format volume. Accompanied for the first time by a new English translation on the same page, these ancient scrolls, which represent some of the earliest human writings, are seen as their creators would have seen them some 3500 years ago.
