Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0714130370, Loose Leaf)Join the world-wide mummy fan club with this Fantastic publication, based on a real Egyptian mummy who now resides in the British Museum. His name is Nesperennub, and he has been extensively studied for the museum's Virtual Mummy project. The book is die cut to the shape of Nesperennub's outer coffin and can be 'fanned' open to reveal two or more of the layers simultaneously. The separate cards show different layers: outer coffin, inner coffin, mummy board and mask, the various layers of bandaging, the mummy itself, and what's right inside the body cavities (revealed by non-destructive CT scanning). Other cards give more information about different aspects of mummies and tombs in Egypt. A truly 'in depth' look at the ever-popular subject of Egyptian mummies.
