I have some books that cover the basics of hieroglyphics, like what each letter--or sound--is represented by, and the determanitives, but I don't know of any that really go indepth into the study of hieroglyphics.

Does anyone know of any really good books on hieroglyphics?

But then I just love E. A. Wallis Budge. He's my favourite Author on Egypt.
