Ancient Egyptian Designs for Artists and Craftspeople (Dover Pictorial Archives) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The timeless simplicity, elegance, and clarity of Egyptian design are clearly evident in this album of over 400 copyright-free illustrations. Spanning more than 3,000 years of arts and crafts in the land of the Pharaohs, the designs have been taken from actual clothing and textiles, furniture, tomb paintings, relief carvings, jewelry, pottery, and other artifacts.

Painstakingly rendered by Eva Wilson, noted illustrator of books on art and archaeology, this wealth of beautiful and useful images includes such traditional motifs as the lotus (the most common motif in Egyptian art), papyrus, sedge, the sun god Re, plant scrolls, scarabs, garlands of flowers and petals, feather patterns, palmettes, and many more.

In addition to superb reproductions of the original images, this book contains an informative introduction outlining the Egyptian approach to art, as well as the techniques and materials used in painting, pottery, and other crafts. Moreover, captions and notes on the designs provide provenances, dates, dimensions where available, and other data.

Artists, needleworkers, designers, and craftspeople will welcome this ready-to-use resource of authentic Egyptian design―the perfect way to add the exotic flavor of the ancient Near East to any art or craft project.

Unabridged Dover (1987) republication of Ancient Egyptian Designs, published by British Museum Publications Ltd., London, 1986.

Synopsis:

Over 400 images of papyrus, sun god Re, lotus, scarabs, plant scrolls, many other authentic motifs. Notes. Captions.
