I am looking for a book about ancient egyptian temples and the hieroglyphic inscriptions and frescos or carvings done in the temples, and I am looking for a variety of pictures more so than information. I am wondering if anyone has any ideas of good books like this. Thanks.

Lorna Oakes book "The Illustrated Encyclopedia of the Pyramids, Temples and Tombs of Ancient Egypt" has plenty of pictures and it has been printed on good paper with vivid colours. It's available for 3.33 (used, good) on Amazon UK today.

Or, if you have deep pockets, "The Temples of Karnak" by R.A. Schwaller de Lubicz. Huge heavy book and probably the best photographic record in existance of the Karnak temples. All B&W, but superbly shot with overviews and detailed close ups. Schwaller de Lubicz has a reputation as an "esoterisist", but as regards this book, even Erik Hornung said it was good. All great photos and descriptions of what you see, no hokum, a must buy, IMO.
