Book 18 for 2012

In Stabiano by various authors. 
This book was a souvenir of our recent holiday in Pompeii. It seems to be basically the catalogue of an exhibition of pieces from the Stabian villas that toured the US at some point and has several articles in it about the villas and a plethora of illustrations.
Some of the articles were very well-written and informative, while others seemed hardly more than a series of barely connected notes. The illustrations more than make up for it though and the aim stated in the book of creating an archaeological park in the area is a worthy one -  villas of Stabiae deserve to be much better known.
