This stunning edition contains images of Ani’s Book of the Dead in its entirety, alongside the translation by Egyptologist E.A. Wallis Budge.
This is a vital text for those who wish to gain understanding of Ancient Egyptian culture.
A beautiful book to keep at home or give as a gift.
The Ancient Egyptians continue to fascinate people from all walks of life, and of all the knowledge we have of their culture, the rituals connected to death and the afterlife are the most compelling.
A detailed introduction provides background information and explains the roll that books of the dead played in ancient Egyptian society.
The papyrus of Ani is an exquisite object, showing vignettes of Egyptian deities –foremost among them Osiris, god of the Afterlife and of the Underworld – combined with dense hieroglyphic text. This book sets the English translation alongside images of the scroll itself.
