By Edward Bleiberg, with an essay by Kathlyn M. Cooney.

In conjunction with the exhibition To Live Forever: Art and Afterlife in Ancient Egypt, this catalogue features a range of Egyptian monuments and objects from the Brooklyn Museum's collection that depict the ancient Egyptian belief in an afterlife and practices for gaining immortality. Curator Ed Bleiberg covers the practical and economic considerations, not only for kings and nobles, but for the middle class and poor, in preparing for the next life, including such details as the cost of coffins.
