 Egyptian Landscapes: Fifty Years of Tapestry Weaving at the Ramses Wissa Wassef Art Centre, Cairo 

An extended essay about Ramses Wissa Wassef's philosophy and the history of the Art Centre, this lavishly illustrated book explains the background to the "experiment in creativity", its trial in the 1940s, the move to Harrania in the 1950s and the extraordinary tapestries produced there ever since by the first generation of children to learn the craft of high-warp weaving. The book also describes how, after the death of Ramses in 1974, his widow Sophie continued the original project while a new generation of weavers has been guided by Ramses and Sophie's daughters to become masters like the first. There are photographs of work produced in the early years of the experiment, of the Art Centre buildings and their setting, and of many of the tapestries. This publication will be invaluable both as a source of information and as record of many of the outstanding works created at the Centre.
