With a history as ancient as that of humankind, the Holy Land contains an unparalleled wealth of archaeological ruins and monuments. Divided into chapters focusing on Jerusalem, North Israel, South Israel, Mount Sinai, and Jordan, this meticulously researched handbook explores vivid symbols of Jewish heritage like Masada and Tiberias and guides readers through such varied sites as the rock-cut city of Petra in Jordan, Megiddo-the supposed site of Armageddon, and St. Catherine's Monastery, the smallest Greek orthodox diocese in the world, delving into the highlights of each site's history and architecture. With a historic survey at the beginning of the book outlining the significant epochs and detailed photographs and plans throughout, this is an indispensable reference for the archaeologically minded traveler

The art of the book : from medieval manuscript to graphic novel by National Art Library (Great Britain) ( Book )
4 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Illuminated Manuscripts, comics, fine bindings, the classics of children's literature, artists' books and their working documents - these are just some of the items to be found in the National Art Library at the V&A. This volume explores the ways in which books represent art and literature, and how the marriage of word and image can create a work of art in its own right." "In a series of thematic chapters, the authors draw on their wide-ranging expertise to look at the Library's major holdings, and in the process illustrate the main aspects of book design and production over the centuries. With medieval books of hours sitting alongside contemporary paperback novels, the choice is wonderfully varied, from Leonardo da Vinci to Sir Eduardo Paolozzi, Joan of Arc to Judge Dredd, Aesop to Charles Dickens, and Babar the Elephant to Ian Fleming." "The colour plates, accompanied by a clear and informative text, demonstrate the many facets of the art of bookmaking. This compendium, spanning six centuries, will be of interest to all those with a love of art, literary history and illustration."--BOOK JACKET./ñR︡
