Whether you are a classical art student, a Roman history enthusiast or quite simply a fan of the antiquity, this book is an absolute must have. Printed on superior quality paper, the colour photographs of paintings in Pompeii, Herculaneum and other areas are simply stunning. I have seen many books on the subject of Roman wall paintings and truly this book is the closest you will get to the real paintings in Pompeii and other locations. I have visited these sites many times and this is the most faithful rendition of the beauty and incredible workmanship the Romans left us.
