Anna Boghiguian is one of Egypt's foremost contemporary artists. Though she has travelled the globe recording her artistic reaction in drawings and paintings, her roads through India, Canada or France always lead back to the land of her birth, Egypt. Her drawings of Egypt reflect her emotional and spiritual responses to the country's many layers of history and myth and to the people who populate them. This personal presentation of Egypt shares both visual and verbal thoughts as it leads us on a tour of this land of fact and fiction through words that paint pictures and drawings that tell stories. This book is as much about the artist as it is the land.
