By Berenice Geoffroy Schneiter
The format of this unusual book takes shape as questions and answers.
What is inside a pyramid? Why did the Egyptians worship cats? Where did the obelisk in the Place de la Concorde in Paris come from? How can you tell apart the portraits of the pharaohs? What role did the Sphinx play in Egyptian life? What was a festival in Upper Egypt like? What did Nefertiti eat?
Both scholarly and playful, Egypt Game Book explores all aspects of ancient Egypt—from art and architecture to daily life and religion—in the form of questions and answers, games, and visual clues. Restorations of tombs, illustrations of sites and museums, a comparative chronology, and a glossary complete this panorama of an Egypt that continues to captivate and fascinate curious minds everywhere.
Of note, die cut pages make for an interesting design. More detail can be seen in the product images.
