The Book of the Dead

The Book of the Dead

THE BOOK OF THE DEAD, published in partnership with the Egypt Exploration Society, collects nineteen original stories, all inspired by the mummy. It is the first ever anthology of its type.

The interior illustrations were created by Garen Ewing, inspired by the style of Erte and flawlessly matching the design and feel of the rest of the book.
