STORY OF WRITING

This book addresses the fascinating subject of writing, how it developed and the different systems employed by different cultures. Including cuneiform, Egyptian and Mayan hieroglyphs, early alphabets, runes, Linear B, the scripts of China and Japan, and more besides, Andrew Robinson explores the virtues of these writing systems and their decipherment, or not in some cases. Accompanied by many illustrations of writing on walls, tablets, objects, stones, monuments, papyri, and so on, this book holds a wealth of information not usually found in one publication.
