Why do people brand cattle, sign paintings, scrawl graffiti on walls and scrape their names into wet concrete? Everyone wants to leave their mark! Writing tracks the written word from cave art to the computer. Uncover the history of pens and pencils and make writing tools from the past. Handcraft paper, try Chinese brush writing and experiment will calligraphy. With tips from famous authors, compose a story or a play and then bind it into book form. Along the way, learn about secret codes, handwriting analysis, Braille and much more. If it’s been written down, it’s written about in Writing: A Fact and Fun Book
