Buried in the 14th century BC but unearthed by Howard Carterin 1922, the objects entombed with Tutankhamun are an invaluable window into a long-extinct belief system. Seen today, they create an intricate picture of how the ancient Egyptian people viewed the perilous journey to paradise, a utopian Egypt that could only be entered following the final judgment.

When acclaimed photographer Sandro Vanninistarted his work in Egypt in the late ’90s, a technological revolution was about to unfold. Emerging technologies enabled him to document murals, tombs, and artifacts in unprecedented detail. Using the time-consuming and strenuous multi-shot technique, Vannini produced complete photographic reproductions that revealed colors in their original toneswith vivid intensity. Through these extraordinary images, we discover the objects’ quintessential features alongside the sophisticated and cleverly hidden details.

In collaboration with a series of international exhibitions, starting with King Tut: Treasures of the Golden Pharaohat the California Science Center in March 2018, this comprehensive guide marks thecentenary of Carter’s first excavations in the Valley of the Kings. These inestimable works endure through Vannini's photographs in their full, timeless splendor.

From offerings and rituals to Osiris and eternal life, Vannini’s portfolio covers all facets of ancient Egyptian culture—but it is Tutankhamun’s unique legacythat dominates these images. With texts by the photographer, captions by specialist Mohamed Megahed,
and chapter introductions from scholars in the field, King Tut. The Journey through the Underworldputs much-debated mysteries to rest. The learned yet accessible forewords come from distinguished Egyptologists includingSalima Ikramand David P. Silverman. Insightful narratives, resplendent images, and a contemporary standpoint make this title afitting tribute to the Boy King’s odyssey, illuminating an epoch that spanned an unimaginable 4,000 years.
