This is a rather heavy booklet thanks to the quality coated paper and the 80 pages of text and photos. The booklet measures 8-1/2" x 11" and is clean as a whistle. It was published to accompany an exhibition at U of M from October 14 to December 17, 1978. Essays written by various authors begin the journey -- Karanis: The Town, the People, and the Excavations; A Note on Statigraphy; and The Sculptures. Next comes the catalog featuring sculpture, stone, bronzes, and terracottas.
