"David Macaulay's brilliant Pyramid shows, detail by detail, how the great pharaohs' burial places were conceived and constructed. . . . His draftsmanship is unexcelled, and his book is pharaonic in opulence and design".--Time.

The construction and use of ancient Egyptian pyramids is beautifully and clearly outlined by David Macaulay, the acclaimed creator of How Things Work.

Pyramid is a strong resource for readers looking to expand their knowledge of ancient Egyptian civilization, history, and architecture.

Award-winning author-illustrator David Macaulay explores the philosophy of life and death in ancient Egypt through richly detailed black-and-white illustrations and clear, concise text.

Though created with middle grade readers in mind, all with interest in the topic will enjoy this impressive look at what many consider to be one of the most awesome of humankind's creations.
