When Writing Met Art : From Symbol to Story
Schmandt - Beserat, Denise

Austin, TX University of Texas Press 2007 First edition Thin octavo (standard size). Slight wear to edges and corners of boards and dust jacket. 134 p. w/ illus., endnotes, bibliography, index. Looking at ancient Near Eastern writing between 3500 and 3000 bc, the author suggest that the conventions of writing greatly influenced the art of the period, and that the art in turn moved writing away from it's original accounting function into replicating speech. Very good Hardcover (Item ID: 17588)
