ROME BOOK of POSTCARDS
testament to humanity's potential & its frailties,
ancient Rome has become a metaphor for both unparalleled
dominion & fallen greatness. From its origins
as a Bronze Age settlement on the Capitol (one of
the famous seven hills of Rome), the city-state rose
to regional hegemony as a monarchy, gained control
of the entire Mediterranean as a republic, & became
one of the world's first superpowers before finally,
as an unwieldy bipartite empire, collapsing uder its
own weight. This book of postcards reproduces thirty
antiquities spanning the history of ancient Rome.
From the collections of The British Museum, these
magnificent artworks & artifacts include portraits
of emperors & gods, illustrations of soldiery
& sport, & remnants of teh diverse cultures
that came to be assimilated into Roman civilisation.
