Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Thanks to Richard Parkinson for such an amazing full length miniaturized reproduction of one of the most beautiful so-called Books of the Dead! And for such a tiny price. I recall another accordion pullout of The Book of the Dead of Ani, albeit much larger, that was prohibitively priced. Hunefer's papyrus is shrunk to 5' x 4-3/8", about a quarter of the original's size. This is the closest most of us will ever get to seeing the actual papyrus of Hunefer in the British Museum. Seeing it all in one piece is amazing--considering that the papyrus of Ani was chopped into chunks. A few of the scenes are enlarged in addition so that we can appreciate the brush strokes and view the creative process of which colors and lines went on in which order. Amazing to think they accomplished that detail with reed brushes!

I'm thinking of getting a second copy to remove the papyrus strip from the binding in order to ornament a wall like a wallpaper strip.

Edit Feb 2014. I see that sellers are trying to market this as if it is a large folio like the Papyrus of Ani, rather than a printed-in-China little gem intended for children. I bought mine from amazon a few years ago. It is a steal at 8 bux but hardly a high priced item. The sellers who would have you think it's pricey are deluded and the rest are sheep.
