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




In this breathtaking photographic journey down the Nile river, renowned photographer Philip Plisson travels by air with bestselling author and Egyptologist Christian Jacq to create this celebration of a spectacular landscape. Plisson's expert lens captures stunning icons of antiquity with the same grace and beauty as it presents the people of Egypt, subsisting as they have for centuries in communities along the Nile delta. Jacq's illuminating text provides a history of the subjects of Plisson's 250 splendid photos, inviting readers to rediscover Egypt as they have never known it before.

Praise for Egypt:

"Philip Plisson's aerial photographs . . . feel like clues to Egypt's mysteries--elegant patterns and strange geometry from a viewpoint that most travelers will never see."
-Virtuoso Life
