House Decoration in Nubia
"This book describes the character and evolution of house decoration in northern Sudanese Nubia, which largely disappeared under the flooding of the Aswan Dam in 1964. The decorations were sculpted in mud-relief or painted on mud walls which dissolved on becoming damp ... they cannot be retrieved if the waters recede ... with 51 line drawings, and 990 black-and-white and 21 colour photographs"--Dustjacket.
