Pretty pictures

Post  DavidMcCann on Wed Mar 16, 2016 2:42 pm

Here's a book I've just bought:
http://www.amazon.com/Household-Gods-Private-Devotion-Ancient/dp/1606064568
Not a how-to-do-it, nor an academic monograph; just a general survey full of pictures of cult statues for domestic use and wall-paintings, mostly from the Getty Museum. For a 142 page hardback, I think the price is pretty good, too.

It looks like an excellent book – thank you for sharing it here.
