Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Gold glints from the tomb of Tutankhamen — gold and the thousand shades of the Nile lotus. These 39 authentic pictures are designs taken from Tut's tomb and other shrines in Thebes, from the 18th–20th Dynasties (c. 1567–1085 B.C.) as rendered by noted designer Ed Sibbett, Jr. They can be colored in the manner of the Egyptian painters (as on the covers) or any way your imagination suggests. Some of these motifs, taken from tomb ceilings, murals, wood sculpture, vases, and papyrus paintings, have been featured in the traveling Tutankhamen exhibit. Motifs include the winged Isis, Osiris, Buto the Cobra-goddess, various Pharaohs, scarabs, and animal deities; scenes of daily life (hunting, boating, banqueting, masters, and servants), and decorative ornament — lotus, ibis, falcon, lion, snake, barbarian. Identifying captions with historical information accompany each drawing, and a brief introduction and glossary of gods complete this coloring book, a fine source of ancient Egyptian pictorial design, and a pleasure to color in any medium.

Excellent book to begin a young child on the pathway of learning the World's History and discovering New Lands and a diversity of religions. My granddaughter loves her books. Thank you .

This is a very detailed coloring book suitable for older kids 1st grade and beyond. Some pictures that are historically correct have topless figures. These are actual art that have been turned into a coloring book and would be of interest to people who are studying ancient Egypt. There are depictions of different gods and much to discuss historically. I thought the best part of the book was the stencil that could be used to write hieroglyphics, I used it to write students names for them. I was doing a volunteer art project in my daughters Kindergarten class room and did not use any of the coloring pages with that age group because the were too intricate. I think I can use it more next year or 2nd grade. A good book especially with the stencil.

This book is good for the buck. Graphics are good although I didn't see any stencil in the book. I do lot of woodburning and carving. Recently I have started to work on gourds and I am really excited to start a new project from this book. I have bit of issue with 2 pictures in the book since its supposed to be for kids. They cold have omited the detail on some women. Other then that the book is deally good for under 4$.

The drawings are very well done and accurate depictions of Egyptian tomb paintings. Too accurate because bare breasts with nipples are not my idea of a suitable coloring book for my 4-year old niece for whom I bought this item. I think it should be made clear in the description that this items has illustrations featuring nudity.
