Item description for My Egyptian Sketchbook (Sketchbooks) by Florine Asch & Christia Desroches Noblecourt...

As daybreak spills the first warm, honeyed light over Cairo, Florine Asch sets out with her sketchpad, pencils, and paintbrushes. Her journey will take her thousands of years into the past, to the sites of ancient Nubia and the temples of Abu Simbel, to the ageless desert oases that impassively watch the centuries pass. The temples of Luxor and Karnak, the pyramids at Giza, the tranquil silhouette of a felucca gliding on the silky waters of the Nile-all come to life under her brush. The text, in the form of a personal travelogue, provides a lively accompaniment to the evocative sketches and collages.

This delightful, highly personal account of a storied travel destination makes the ideal gift for Egypt enthusiasts and amateur watercolorists alike.

Reviews - What do customers think about My Egyptian Sketchbook (Sketchbooks)?

Captures the ethereal beauty of ancient & new Egypt!  Jun 16, 2007
I loved Florine Asch's My Italian Sketchbook, and this offering doesn't disappoint either. The artist, through gorgeous, sumptuous, detailed watercolors brings to life the architecture and cultural life of Egypt - from Cairo to Luxor [The Temple of Karnak...] to Lake Nasser to Aswan to Abu Simbel to Siwa, the ancient[the pyramids, reliefs] and new Egypt [daily life, commercial activities] are brought to life, with interesting commentary in between. A must-have for Egyptologists, and anyone who appreciates artistic depictions of architecture and culture.
