This little book is part of the Buried Worlds Series published by Runestone Press. Only 64 pages long yet it is full of both black and white and color photos of mosaics discovered from around the world in ancient and modern times. Although Avi-Yonah was a specialist in Israeli finds, this expansive work covers a vast area from the “Mediterranean, the Middle East, and the Americas” as noted on the inside cover of the dust jacket and appears designed for youthful readers.The book briefly addresses how it is done, the tools and materials used, and some samples of mosaics from ancient Greece, the Roman empire and the Byzantine world all the way through to modern mosaics. The final pages of the book contains a pronunciation guide, a glossary of some technical terms and a brief index. There is no bibliography.Young people will surely find this a fascinating introduction to the study of this facet of art.
