Draw like an (Ancient) Egyptian
By Joe Gamble
240 x 200 mm
Take a journey down the Nile to the Delta and discover the rites and rituals, art and culture of the Ancient Egyptians. Jackal-headed Anu- bis, Osiris, ruler of the underworld and his wife, Isis, goddess of love, are brought to life in Joe Gamble’s warm, contemporary style. Activities include: designing a pharoah’s headdress, making up your own gods, writing your name in hieroglyphics and discovering the treasures of Tutankhamun’s tomb, alongside plenty of colouring in. A warm, humorous illustration and text style will get young readers engaging with the fascinating historical rituals and traditions of one of the world’s greatest civilisations.
