Gifts of the Nile

Wanted to share this new (December 2011) review of "Gifts of the Nile," an interesting and beautiful book about ancient Egyptian faience. It was originally published in 1998 to accompany an exhibit by the same name. If this subject interests you at all and you haven't seen this book, I highly recommend this review. (Also on this site is a review of a September 2011 lecture by Paul Nicholson on "Glass, Faience and Pottery Making at Amarna O45.1," also recommended.)
