E. Frood, A. McDonald (eds.), Decorum and Experience: Essays in ancient culture for John Baines, Griffith Institute Publications, Oxford, 2013, ISBN 978-0-900416-92-7

As a festschrift to honour Oxford Egyptologist Prof. John Bains, the book contains essays on ancient Egyptian thinking and world view as detected through texts, iconography and their combination in Egyptian works of art. Contributors include top academic scholars whose work has defined modern Egyptology, such as James P. Allen, Mark Collier, Mark Smith, John Tait, Christiane Zivie-Coche, Fayza Haikal, Gay Robins, Tom Hare, Mario Liverani, David O’ Connor and Marjorie Fisher, as well as younger researchers taught by Baines.

The essays are introduced by a preface by editors Elizabeth Frood and Angela McDonald, both Bains’ students and currently teaching in Oxford and Glasgow respectively, as well as an essay by University of Liverpool lecturer Roland Enmarch.
