For the first time, this vast heritage is revealed in all its unparalleled glory ill hundreds of magnificent full-color photographs -- including many breathtaking close-ups and details -- and texts by some of the world's leading Egyptologists.Alongside the legendary treasures of Tutankhamun are some of the most impressive examples of Egyptian sculpture, wall paintings, and decorative art from the pyramid complexes of Giza, Saqqara, and Dahshur, the royal necropolis of Thebes, and the Temple of Karnak, among other fascinating sites.From the finest jewelry to the most imposing statues, every artifact is captured in startling clarity -- with special lighting techniques that evoke, as never before, the awe and wonder inspired by these fabulous ancient treasures.
