The Five Mile Press, Victoria, Australia, 2015. Good secondhand condition.
This educational book on the meaning of human artefacts from past civilisations is itself a remarkable artefact. At 37cm x 28cm it is as large as a small coffee table, but remarkably easy to handle and exquisitely made. The paper is of high quality, and Richard Wilkinson?s illustrations based on photographs, created in pen and ink, then coloured digitally, are breathtaking. The premise of the book is that you are entering a museum that houses 130 objects from ancient civilisations. Each one will be illustrated, with an accompanying text putting it into its archaeological context.
This book is highly recommended for any child with curiosity, and any adult for that matter too. Recommended for ages 5 to 95 years.
