Great fun, you find a use. Many illustrations from 19th C. sources. Sphinx, mummies, mourners, chariots, gods, this book's got 'em all! As with the other Dover clip art books/CD-ROMs you can pull them off the CD-ROM without actually importing them onto your HD. This collection is among my favorites, along with Dover's books & reading, food & drink and animals software sets.

I have owned this book and CD-ROM for several years. As a web designer, and someone specializing in Ancient Egypt, I have used this book so many times I have lost count! Filled with many images from turn of the 20th century resources and those from antiquity, it is something I have given to friends and has been met with lots of excited "Oohs!" and "Ahh's!" The copyright free art definitely can add alot to any article, website or project you are doing.

The pictures in the Dover CD Egyptian Designs are very interesting, and the pictures - in a small size - appear to be excellent; however, upon enlargement the line drawing are poor. The fine lines do not hold up when enlarged on the majority of these drawings. Why is happens is obscure to me, but the lines of the drawings themselves do not stay uniform upon enlargement; that is, they appear to vary in width. Take the first drawing of Isis. In small size the lines appear fine, but upon enlargement the lines take on a crude aspect that isn't at all impressive or pleasing.

Although these pictures can be enlarged easily, unlike the CD on Women's Advertising Cuts where the pictures are extremely small and do not enlarge without being destroyed (lines go to zig-zag), the resulting enlargements are still poor because the line quality and shading suffer terribly upon increasing the size.

I buy these CD's to use the pictures in monthly publications, among other uses, but to really keep the quality of the picture they must remain very small. This hampers my ability to use them in a flexible manner which limits their usefulness to me. Thus, two stars.

So far, the best - by far - of the Dover CD books has been Vintage Valentines. Those pictures are wonderful, and they are in full color. Plus, they can be enlarged without a loss of quality. If you want a superb CD ROM book look into that one and stay away from this one and the CD on Women's Advertising Cuts.

As a long-time Egyptian fan I like this package as it comes with a CD ROM making use of the images within easier. It needs to be mentioned however, that this book is a re-issue of the older Dover publication "Ready-to-Use Egyptian Motifs" by Maggie Kate. What Dover has done is clever and inventive in re-issuing older documents while including CD ROMs and re-naming the book, but it is only mentioned inside the cover of "Egyptian Designs" that it came from "Egyptian Motifs". I accidentally bought "Motifs" online not knowing that its image contents were exactly the same as "Designs", which I previously owned. Other publications by Dover in their Electronic Clip Art series is very likely to have been treated the same way. Both books are good quality books and fun, I wish they had more images inside, but be aware if you do not wish to have near-duplicate copies.

Note that the comparison above to "Egyptian Designs" here is NOT the "Egyptian Designs" by Carol Belanger Grafton (also a Dover publication). Her designs are unique and different from either of the books mentioned in this review.
