Talk about Pompeii: the History, Life and Art of the Buried City

Stunning publication -- large format, excellent printing. Marvelous review with academic commentary that brings it all to life. Great value! Make sure you order the right format: the big version we bought is outstanding.

We saw the traveling exhibit of Pompeii and we were very disappointed that there was not a souvenir book that talked about the exhibit. This was purchased and is an excellent coffee table book. The price was very reasonable!

I had the great fortune to see "A Day in Pompeii" at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. This exhibit was only brought to 3 museums in the entire United States before departing to Europe. Since that exhibit, my kids and I have been on the hunt for a great book on Pompeii. We have checked out several and I've bought a few until finally seeing this one. Not only are the photographs, quality of the book, and objects they are portraying top notch, but the writing is excellent. Beyond excellent. The final pages written about the volcano itself are part geology lesson about volcanoes, part what it would be like if you were in Pompeii on that day and you had not already escaped before the lapilli started to fall from the sky. I rarely give books reviews, but if this topic interests you at all, THIS IS THE BOOK TO OWN.

Great book on the subject. My 11 year old is fascinated with Pompeii, and this extensive work gave her a whole new view of the city.

It is a beautifully illustrated and carefully edited book. It is a "only" four stars rating as I really appreciate maps as a good tool to learn History and the book simply has no maps or graphics to help the comprehension of Naples, Herculaneum, Pompeii and Stabia environment area. But the book really worths every penny you pay for it as the pictures are amazing and certainly constitute an excellent source of information for those who are intending to visit Pompeii site as well as for the ones who have already been there and are interested in better comprehend in a more detailed manner the place which symbolizes the starting point of modern archeology studies.

This book is stunning! The photography is breathtaking. The first class photos are huge, many double fold out. The essays are thorough - written by specialists of Pompeii in a gracious, informative style!

The photographs primarily cover art: the amazing wall paintings, furniture, architecture, gardens, rooms, and possessions of wealthy Pompeiians. The photographic perspectives are superb! Not included are the tragic plaster figures of victims and a map of Pompeii. Nor is Herculaenium depicted.

Nothing has been spared to make this THE BOOK of Pompeiian art. It is a "coffee table" book... heavy and large. The pages are the highest grade quality, very thick and glossy. It looks, feels, and reads like it should cost well over $100 and probably does at fancy book stores. It's the nicest book I have ever owned.

This book is BEAUTIFUL! It is very large, with glossy pages and amazing pictures. It was required for class, which made it difficult to lug around, but I would buy it all over again in a heartbeat. One of my favorites although it is not my historical passion.
This is a beautiful book full of interesting information about Pompeii. It is thick and heavy with fabulous color photos. A really nice coffee table book.
