3 D'Auria, Sue; Lacovara, Peter; Roehring, Catharine H. Mummies & Magic: the Funerary Arts of Ancient Egypt
0878463038 / 9780878463039; This exhibit was originally conceived and shown at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Working with the Dallas Museum of Art, they developed a long-term loan of the many Egyptian articles that Boston had no space to show. This catalog is a reprint of the Boston show, containing additional color images included in the Dallas exhibit. The topic embraces a broad spectrum of Egyptian life, and the Egyptians' beliefs about death and the dead. Through the study of actual mummies we can learn their ages at death, their medical and dental histories, and the diseases from which they suffered. By extension, the study of burials and tomb chapels, the art and architecture of tombs, and accompanying burial equipment provide the scholar with a rich and rewarding trove of information. 276 pages including an index, bibliography and abbreviations. Well illustrated, 8 pages of color. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.

4 Kennon, Kevin; Gandelsonas, Mario; Butler, Ruth The Rodin Museum, Seoul
1568982356 / 9781568982359; This museum was intended to house two major works and is, therefore, not very big. But the beauty is in the design - one gets the feeling that there is light all around because the small building is made of varying amounts of translucent glass. This book shows not only photographs of the beautiful finished product, but of the steps taken and drawings of the proposed museum. It is tucked into a corner over which there is a tall building, but it is not affected by the building, nor the 8 lanes of expressway traffic zooming past (there's an amazing photo of this! ) . It is meant to be a place of quiet contemplation. A beautiful book, an interesting read, and a striking museum are all contained in this volume. This 11 1/2" wide book is bound in grey cloth, and the heavy dust jacket folds over at the top and bottom, as well as the edges. 95 pages, including several full-color photographs which are marvelous! 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall.

Black cloth binding with gilt lettering on front and spine. Decorated end papers, and over 200 full-color plates and photographs of Tiffany's work. There are very light spots about 2" on the bottom pages that look like a splash. The jacket has chips at the spine ends and corners, and a few properly repaired tears.

9 Young, John T. Contemporary Public Art in China: a Photographic Tour
0295977086 / 9780295977089; More than ten thousand public artworks have been created in the People's Republic of China since its establishment in 1949. They range from the ubiquitous Chairman Mao statues, to immense monuments and murals commemorating revolutionary uprisings, to abstract pieces inspired by international artistic trends. Eighty-three of the most intriguing of these works are featured here by American sculptor John Young, who traveled to dozens of Chinese cities, photographing public artworks and interviewing artists and arts administrators. Comments from these interviews, along with information about subjects and settings are woven into the text accompanying the color photographs. Most of the artworks portrayed in John Young's superb photographs have never before appeared in a Western publication. Contemporary Public Art in China is a valuable resource for anyone interested in recent Chinese art or public art, as well as a fascinating guide for visitors to China. This book is still wrapped in publishers plastic. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
