An epic spanning six thousand years — the history of writing. From the valleys of the Tigris and the Euphrates to the shores of the Mediterranean, from hieroglyphics and cuneiform to the Phoenicians and the alphabet as we know it, we follow its mysterious course through the ages. Colourful medieval manuscripts lead to the invention of printing and to the rich world of modern lettering in all its forms. Writing lies at the root of our civilisation. It is the accumulated memory of mankind.
