“This book looks specifically at shabtis, and is what can only be described as a sumptuous and remarkable volume which has perhaps set a standard of publication which others might find difficult to follow.”
Bob Partridge, Ancient Egypt  Magazine

“There is no question that this book is a major addition to the literature on ushabtis, and certainly the most beautiful book on Egyptian  ushabtis  as well. The illustrations of the figurines, all in colour, are from the absolutely superb photography of Tom Bangbala, and the best to be seen in colour. The book is a MUST for anyone interested in or collecting ushabtis.”
Peter Clayton, Minerva Magazine
