Description de l'ouvrage

16 août 2005 Rizzoli Art Guide
Here is a thorough, easy-to-use guide to the vast and stunning collection of art and antiquities found in Egypt's archaeological paradise, the Valley of the Kings. The Tomb of Tutankhamun and its contents are featured prominently, as are the temples of Luxor and Karnak, the dromos, the Luxor Museum, the Chapel of Achoris, the Valley of Asasif, the Ramesseum, the Valley of the Queens, and the Colossi of Memnon. Dendera, Esna, Abydos Edfu, and Korn Ombo-all peripheral locations to the major sites-are included because their state of preservation makes them especially interesting for visitors and scholars. Weeks has spent his career documenting the regions and infuses this guide with a level of clarity and detail not previously achieved in a handbook.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Beautiful Book! 27 septembre 2009
Par Claire Pool - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Turtleback|Achat vérifié
This is a gorgeous book. The glossy color photos, and there are hundreds, are luscious. There's an abundance of detail and explanation - maybe too much for some. The weight of the book (565 glossy pages)does not make it an ideal travel companion, but it should be mandatory reading before a trip. It will help you decide what you want to see. If you've already taken your trip, then buy it as a momento, especially since there are no photos allowed in the tombs. Or, if you're an armchair traveller, you will love this book. Not only does it thoroughly cover Week's area of archeological excavation,the Valley of the Kings, but it covers all sites on the West Bank and in Luxor and all of the notable Temples outside of Luxor. Plus, there are beautiful detailed photos of tombs that are closed to the public. It's more an art book than a travel guide. Well worth every penny.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Quality guide to the sites - fully illustrated 12 avril 2012
Par Jane Akshar - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Turtleback
I actually live in Luxor and guide people round the sites myself so for me to buy a guide book it has to be good. This one is.

It is not a Lonely Planet giving you ticket prices and how to get there advice but a comprehensive description of the various sites, their history and what to look for. Each site has a portion on its history followed by a detailed description on visiting the site. It had masses of excellent photographs including ones taken from hot air balloons of the temple sites. There are plans and drawings a plenty detailing what to look for and where.

It has been written as a background read before you go, an onsite guide book and a souvenir to remind you of your visit and it manages to do all of these. There is loads more detail than in the more general guide books. I especially appreciated the description of the house of Sennedjem at Deir El Medina and the walk over the hills. The author Kent Weeks is currently excavating the tomb of the sons of Rameses II KV5 and is part of the Theban Mapping project so it has a lot of material from there.

My only criticism would be its lack of price information and that it doesn't take account of how tickets are sold. Example the Nobles tombs are grouped historically but the tickets are sold by location. But as a fully detailed explanation of the sites of Luxor it can not be beaten and the photographic record is fantastic.

I found this an excellent guide, I felt I could hear Kent speaking as I read it.
It is a heavy book,and I hope to be able to bring it with me on my next trip to Luxor.
It is small enough/but heavy., but so beautifully written and photographed, I am deciding to scuttle some pairs of shoes to have it with me this time.
I have visited most of the temples and palaces over the last number of years,and now wish I had this book with me.
