Writing: Making Your Mark"Writing is so much more than words on the page - it is how we communicate across time and space" says Adrian Edwards, lead curator of Writing: Making Your Mark at the British Library. Tracing the evolution of the written word, from hieroglyphics to emojis, this landmark exhibition examines the act of writing across five millennia and five continents. Over 30 different writing systems are on display including an ancient wax tablet containing a child's homework and a Chinese typewriter from the 1970s. Rare items like Caxton's 1476-7 printing of the Canterbury Tales - the first book printed in England - show how writing is one of humankind's greatest achievements.

About British Library

With over 150 million items, a copy of every publication produced in the UK and Ireland, artwork by artists such as Antony Gormley and Eduardo Paolozzi, and a host of historically momentous works - including the Magna Carta, the Gutenberg Bible, Shakespeare's First Folio and the Lindisfarne Gospels - a guided tour around the British Library is the best way to take it all in.
