The past uncovered

17th June 2005 at 01:00
Heads of gods, goddesses and heroes gaze out at the reader, supported by a narrow close-packed column of text. "Mythology" is one of a new series of Fandex Family Field Guides, bringing impressive colour photographs together with user-friendly information. The images here derive from classical masks, vases and statuary and Renaissance paintings. The 50 cards fan out to form a pantheon stretching from Achilles to Zeus, with names given in both their Greek and Latin forms. "Explorers" is similar, but here the sweep is chronological, beginning with the Phoenicians and ending with the first men on the Moon. "Mythology" and "Explorers" cost pound;8.99 + pp.
