The diagrams are Spartan in design. In the beginning of the book are maps showing the location of the tombs and the rest are isometric drawings of the tombs showing the rooms and corridors in an idealized fashion. The atlas is useful for understanding the layout of each tomb and its location in the necrovalley. There is lots of empty space in the diagrams, so much so that you could use the atlas as a scrapbook or notebook if you were doing research in the valley.
