Reviews - What do customers think about Fayum Portraits (Memoirs)?

A lot of pictures  Aug 10, 2008
I bought this book as a reference for making art. So I was very pleased to see that the book contains a lot of pictures. It's almost a Photo album with ancient family pictures. Great book.
Striking presentation  Mar 18, 2006
This is a small book full of beautifull portraits of Fayum people, in which we can delight ourselves in the skills and artistry of the local artists, as well as the cultural customs it arrised from. It contains a short, but quite satisfactory introduction to the history and traditions of these portraits in greek-roman-egyptian culture. The basis of this book is the portraits themselves, these were carefully selected to present a spectrum of egyptian society. They are presented in a black foreground which enhances the portrait, simulating a family album, if you will. Haunting and beautifull. Recomend it to anyone who enjoys portraits.
