KIRKUS REVIEW

The author of The Art of Ancient Egypt (1962, p.566, J-164), now turns to the art of the lands mentioned in the Bible to present further insight into the spirit and nature of ancient peoples. A collection of fine photographs set artfully against color-blocked backgrounds accompanied by brief descriptions make this a sound introduction to ancient art and life. The author relates the art objects to the culture and historical background of the Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians and others. Often, a discussion of the artist's methods and use of materials is introduced. Librarians will welcome this unhackneyed approach to this subject.
