Non so, forse amo le opere monumentali ma complete, ma questo libro ha rappresentato per me una sorta di "assaggio" sull'arte dell'Egitto antico. Sicuramente è ben strutturato ed organizzato, e molte spiegazioni vengono date in modo molto più limpido che altrove, però alcune cose fondamentali non appaiono..e alcuni concetti sembrano essere riportati in maniera ripetitiva per tutta la lunghezza del volume. Ma vabbè, questi sono i nostri studiosi! :P

Maybe more like 2.5.

Very much a textbook, but a readable one. Plus, it's gorgeous.
