  • Description

    The publication is available in 200 signed and numbered copies. It includes the book with a specially crafted cover in a handmade plexiglass box.

    The book consists of a collection of eleven essays that provide an assesment of the influence the Aegean world has exerted upon Greek art and civilization throughout the ages. Eleven authors, all leading experts in their fields of history, literature and art, highlight important aspects of the Aegean world in texts that combine up-to-date scholarship with a lively re-evaluation of philosophy, architecture, sculpture, painting, etc. The book's most engaging quality, however, is the manner in which it attempts to convey a vivid image of the Aegean Sea and the civilization that flourished on its islands.

    Illustrated throughout with unique, often full page aerial photographs and drawings, the volume brilliantly captures the essence of Greek civilization and constitutes a lively introduction to the history of the Aegean world. It also provides a comprehensive study and evaluation of its many aspects and succeeds in establishing it as a point of reference for Western culture.
