I've loved ancient Egypt ever since my childhood days of hanging around the Egyptian floors of the Walters Art Gallery and the University of Pennsylvania Museum. Tales of Ancient Egypt, a children's collection of Egyptian myths by Roger Lancelyn Green, was one of my favorite books at age seven. By junior high I was chewing on Budge's antiquated translation of the The Egyptian Book of the Dead. While working on an MA in Mythological Studies, I've had a chance to review more scholarly and recent books on Egyptian myths and legends.
Raymond O. Faulkner's translation of The Egyptian Book of the Dead is a museum-quality presentation of the "Papyrus of Ani," a lushly-illustrated New Kingdom edition of the classic Egyptian text buried with the dead as a guidebook to help them reach the blessed afterlife.
The EGYPT BOOK includes complete instructions, patterns and full color photos to create:
