King Tutankhamun: The Treasures of the Tomb
The fabulous treasures of Tutankhamun have fascinated the public since their discovery by Howard Carter in 1922. Many books have been written about the boy king and his tomb, but this volume by world-renowned Egyptologist Zahi Hawass provides the reader with a unique perspective on this extraordinary archaeological find. Images by pioneering photographer Sandro Vannini offer distinctive views of almost 200 of the spectacular artifacts found at the burial site.
King Tutankhamun uses carefully selected objects to illustrate the entire ten years of painstaking excavation and documentation carried out by Carter and his team. Organized to follow the chambers of the tomb in the order in which they were excavated, it illuminates the site's most magnificent artifacts.
An experienced field archaeologist who has made many important discoveries himself, Dr. Hawass imbues the text with his own unique voice, imagining how exploration of the tomb must have felt for Carter and providing invaluable information about the objects. Sandro Vannini's photographs are extraordinary as well, allowing the objects to be seen in even more detail than is possible with the naked eye.
Zahi Hawass is Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, Egypt, and Director of Excavations at Giza, Saqqara, and the Bahariya Oasis. Over his long and illustrious career he has made a number of major archaeological discoveries, of which the most spectacular are the tombs of the Pyramid Builders at Giza and the Valley of the Golden Mummies at Bahariya. Sandro Vannini has worked closely with Hawass over the years and contributed photographs to The Royal Tombs of Egypt.

Review: King Tutankhamun: The Treasures of the TombUser Review - Goodreads
I have read many a book on Tutankhamen--he's been an obsession of mine since childhood--and this is one of the loveliest I've encountered. The text I could take or leave; this is definitely a book to read for the pictures.

Great photography of artifacts. Interesting opinions by Egyptologist Zahi A. Hawass...who incedentally, does not believe in the 'mummy's curse'. Fascinating to hear more of the facts and timeline of the find, excavation, preservation and politics surrounding King Tut's tomb. Read full review
