9780500300879: Signs, Symbols and Ciphers: Decoding the Message (New Horizons)

Signs and symbols represent abstract ideas and concrete objects, providingn a sense of number, danger, value, distances in time and space, and even love. Over time, these marks and gestures have multiplied into an immernse and complex network of images, pictures and emblems - pictographs and logographs, maps and charts, letterforms, colours and patterns. How does a sign represent something other than itself? How do we come to understand the maning of a written symbol? What happens when a sign crosses international borders of language and culture? Can clothes constitute a sign? Can colours? Can sounds? This work takes the reader on a journey of discovery through the world of symbols.
