Egyptian Places: An Illustrated Travelogue, presents an architect’s account of visits to 12 of Ancient Egypt’s most spectacular sites, a journey that transports the reader from the urban metropolis of Cairo and the Great Pyramid of Giza to the remote desert setting of the rock-cut temple at Abu Simbel; with visits to other monumental temples and towering pyramids which line the Nile River.

The book recreates that journey, describing important architectural features of these sacred monuments, their mystic foundations, and religious significance. With over 200 color hand drawings and graphic studies capture and interpret the character of each site from the architect’s unique perspective.

Henry David Ayon practices architecture in Richmond, Virginia and is a former adjunct faculty member at Virginia Commonwealth University—where he taught design and drawing, two life-long devotions. A graduate of the University of Texas School of Architecture, he also holds a Master’s Degree in the Science of Historic Preservation from Columbia University
