Photographs by Emmet Gowin. Afterword by Phillip C. Hammond.

In 1982 Emmet Gowin was invited to visit the country of a former student of his, Queen Noor al Hussein of Jordan, now the wife of King Hussein. In 1983 and again in 1985, Gowin returned to photograph the ancient city of Petra. The result of that work is now available in this elegant book. Printed by Meriden Gravure accurately matches the color and tonality of Gowin's rich photographs depicting the beauty and mystery of the ancient tombs and passageways of this city that flourished from fourth-century B.C. until the mid-sixth century A.D.
