A new anthology Ethiopia Illustrated: Church Paintings, Maps and Drawings was published by the Ethiopian Academy Press in Addis Ababa. The book presents a collection of research articles on Ethiopian manuscripts and paintings by Dorothea McEwan, which had previously appeared in a variety of journals accessible to readerships in Europe and North America, but which were not easily accessible in Ethiopia.

This new volume bears the fruit of some twenty-five field trips in Ethiopia and Eritrea as well as archival visits in Ethiopia and Europe which she undertook over the years, when she visited churches and studied their wall paintings and the books in their care—among them gospel books, Miracles of Mary and Books of Revelation. This work was complemented by analysing manuscripts by European scientists, craftspeople, artists, and explorers who had worked in Ethiopia, and whose records are now kept in archives and collections in Europe.
