"It was for a long time the dream of Kamal El Mallakh to do a book on the extraordinary wealth of art surviving from Ancient Egypt. With the idea that the famous sites of the Nile Valley today collectively constitute one great museum, it was Mallakh who conceived and realized this project. By organizing a team of photographers to visit the famous temples and tombs and directing them in the selection of the subjects to be reproduced in this volume, Mallakh provided the basis for this important survey and the exquisite color-plates which accompany the commentary texts."
