Description - Egypt Visual Sourcebook for Designers, Architects and Artists by Jim Hewitt
This unique visual reference guide will be an invaluable resource to professional designers - from architects to illustrators, production designers, art directors, decorators, film concept artists, sculptors and painters. It uses colour photographs to illustrate a wide range of locations and styles of architecture throughout Egypt, particularly highlighting universal architectural elements that may be incorporated into a variety of designs and styles including arches, doorways, windows, balconies, wall finishes and more. Photographic plates of modern and ancient Egypt, showing markets, buildings, temples, tombs and daily life are cross-referenced with enlarged details and grouped for functional comparisons to cater to the various approaches a designer may take from conception to completion. With some 1,000 colour illustrations, thorough referencing and detailed observation, this book will serve a very specific need while also appealing to a wider audience as a visual celebration of many aspects of Egypt, familiar and unfamiliar. For ease of use for the designer, the book also includes a CD with all images and interactive referencing abilities.
