book cover of Egypt


A non fiction book by

From sand-swept desert ruins to the brilliant water of the Red Sea to the vibrant city of Cairo, Egypt's landscape is as legendary as its mythical history. Home to hieroglyphs, pharaohs, and the Great Pyramids of Giza, Egypt's rich cultural heritage truly merits it a place in the Cradle of Civilization.

In this breathtaking photographic journey, renowned photographer Philip Plisson travels with bestselling author and Egyptologist Christian Jacq to celebrate the many places and faces of this spectacular land. Plisson's expert lens captures stunning icons of antiquity with the same grace and beauty as it presents the people of Egypt: at work, at play, subsisting as they have for centuries in communities along the Nile Delta and, at the same time, enjoying all that modernity has to offer.

Jacq's illuminating text provides insight to Plisson's 250 splendid photos, inviting readers to rediscover Egypt as they've never known it before.
