Acerca de


The aim of this book is twofold: first, to provide beginning students with step-by-step guidance in drawing hieroglyphs; and secondly, to supplement the observations of Gardiner in the Sign List at the back of his Egyptian Grammar. The examples include all 24 of the common forms of "alphabetic" (monoconsonantal) signs, and a selection of other signs that are either difficult to draw or that call for additional comment—a total of about 200 in all. Comparative material, emphasizing Old Kingdom models, is presented in 175 line drawings. By familiarizing themselves with this material, along with the points made in the Introduction, students will, at the same time, learn a good deal about hieroglyphic palaeography.

(This title was originally published in 1979/80.)
