Written and visual communication has taken many forms over human history, whether based on graphic signs or phonetic-alphabetic systems. This installation features an ancient Egyptian stela, an illuminated medieval Armenian Gospel, an early modern Inka knotted khipu that records sophisticated numerical accounting, A selection of rare books and manuscripts showcases the distinctive writing systems of Japanese, Ge’ez, Arabic, Javanese, and English. Religious texts embody the divine; calendars often guide prophecies, and all these texts seek to move a message from sender to receiver.
