This review is from: The Story of Writing: Alphabets, Hieroglyphs and Pictograms (Paperback)
A broad ranging review of writing ancient and modern, this book is packed with photographs and diagrams to support a clearly written overview ofwriting through history. Given the breadth of the subject the treatment isobviously limited in the depth of analysis of each topic, but is eminentlyreadable. A good introductory text, it would also be suited to younger(13+) readers.
