On another note, a book I NEED to get a copy of that I am currently borrowing from the library here is "The Book Of Signs", by Rudolf Koch, ISBN 486-20162-7, first published in 1955. It's a collection of nearly 500 symbols, their meanings and relations to one another, and explanations of how they were developed or who first used them in many cases. It's a small book, very simple, VERY well done, and an excellent resource that I want to have on hand.
Another book I'm going through along the same lines is "Symbols of Egypt" by Heike Owusu, 0-8069-3545-6, which contains symbols, deity references, sacred signs, and information on plants, animals, etc. found in hieroglyphs. I'm not quite feeling as urgent a need for this book as I am for The Book Of Signs but it IS a very nice reference book that I wouldn't mind owning and wholeheartedly recommed to anyone wanting to research ancient egyptian symbology.
I've picked up a couple other books as well, but they're both honking huge hardcover books and not in the room at the moment, so they get no useful mention yet. *wry grin* And now, back I go to working on my current hand design.
It's way too hot, incidentally.
