Beyond the Nile
Egypt and the Classical World
Edited by Jeffrey Spier, Timothy Potts, and Sara E. Cole
The history of the ancient world is not simply the stories of Egypt, Greece, and Rome as separate cultures, but an interwoven narrative of aesthetic and technological exchange, hybridization, and collaboration. This milestone publication is the first to offer a comprehensive account of these vicissitudes of cultural exchange, covering over 2500 years with lively prose and gorgeous illustrations.

Plato in L.A.
Contemporary Artists' Visions
Over a millennium has passed since Plato wrote his dialogues, but the concepts he presented still hold powerful sway over artists' imaginations even to this day. This volume examines the work of more than ten artists, including Mike Kelley, Jeff Koons, Raymond Pettibon, and Adrian Piper, to illuminate how Platonic thought, from the Socratic method to the realm of the forms, shapes art now.
