Taschen has released a new book that takes a look at an ancient Egypt that is unfamiliar to most. While we've always been exposed to pharaohs and pyramids, the new book takes us into the everyday life of the general society through stunning visuals. From the mundane domestic affairs to more exciting leisure activities, the book details a period of time that upon closer investigation, is not too dissimilar to our society and in fact, could have possibly set the course for certain contemporary practices.
