About the Book
'The Construction of Meaning' looks at the development of pictographic writing in Mesopotamia and the development of hieroglyphics in Egypt, from simple pictorial representations to phonetics. Each piece of work in this book places pictograms, hieroglyphs or letters in an artistic, graphic context.
