Pyramid Texts by Gamal Al-Ghitani
Book DescriptionWeaving strands of Sufi mysticism and medieval Islamic history into ancient Egypt's most enduring symbols, "Pyramid Texts" beguiles the imagination with its masterful use of language, its haunting parables, and its glimpses of divine revelation. In a series of chapters each shorter than the last - so that they taper ultimately into nothingness - the Gamal al-Ghitani traces the obsessions that have drawn men over the centuries to the brooding presence of the pyramids.

A photographic presentation of Egypt offers us a vision of the country and its people. It draws us into Egypt's mystique, its scintillating waters, bucolic vistas, ruins, and places of worship. It lets us observe the correspondences of shape and texture, perspective and repetition, light and shadow, and the vitality in the mundane and commonplace.
