Book Description London : Thames & Hudson, 1997. Book Condition: Sehr gut. 240 S. Ein gutes und sauberes Exemplar. - To the four great calligraphic traditions - ancient Egyptian, East Asian, Islamic, and western European - we must now add a fifth: that of the ancient Maya. Long known but little understood, it has recently experienced a revolution in decipherment, shedding bright light on what had been a mystery. Making full use of the latest findings, this is the first book to look at Maya writing for its beauty no less than for its meaning. Michael Coe considers the origins and character of the script, explores the world of the scribes and 'keepers of the holy books', decoding their depiction in Maya art, and examines the media in which they worked, their tools and their techniques. The artist-calligrapher enjoyed a high status in Classic Maya society. So important were the scribes that they lived in their own palaces and worshipped their own patron gods. Their achievements are displayed in stone, stucco, wood, shell, bone, murals and screenfold books, and painted or carved on magnificent ceramic vessels placed as offerings to the dead and to gods. These great masterpieces are vividly interpreted by the photographs of Justin Kerr, many the product of the rollout camera developed by him. Wir versenden am Tag der Bestellung von Montag bis Freitag. Sprache: Englisch Gewicht in Gramm: 1550 Mit zahlr. auch farb. Abb. Fadengehefteter Originalpappband mit Schutzumschlag.
