  • Join the world-wide mummy fan club with this fantastic publication, based on a real Egyptian mummy who now resides in the British Museum. His name is Nesperennub, and he has been extensively studied for the Museum's Virtual Mummy project. The book is die-cut to the shape of Nesperennub's outer coffin and can be 'fanned' open to reveal two or more of the layers simultaneously. The separate cards show different layers: outer coffin, inner coffin, mummy board and mask, the various layers of bandaging, the mummy itself, and what's right inside the body cavities (revealed by non-destructive CT scanning). Other cards give more information about different aspects of mummies and tombs in Egypt. A truly 'in depth' look at the ever-popular subject of Egyptian mummies
