I agree with the Publisher's Weekly review above... the text is interesting and informative, though consevative to say the least. But it's true that to find out anything about a particular tomb, you have to use the index, and follow each page entry for text and images. It's very tedious. I think it would be more helpful to have the thematic text followed by catalogue entries for each tomb.

Once again the Getty Museum has produced a treasure in the form of a perfect book. This time with the mysterious and sublime art of the Etruscans. One gets an incredibly accurate feel for the layout of the tombs in which the frescoes are to be found by means of countless color reproductions and diagrams. This book would be a bargain at twice the price given the quality of the paper, binding and format.
This is the ideal companion to Domus, their treatment of Roman wall painting.

The special paper does tend to make the photographs come alive as though you were standing right in front of the tomb wall.
