Calligraphy primarily; I've been practicing Hieratic for a number of months now. When/if I ever get it down, maybe I'll post calligraphy pieces in it here; still studying the language itself simultaneously (learning to associate each Hieroglyph with its Hieratic form). This is a great site for studying Hieratic: Basic Lessons in Hieratic

emhotep That is a very interesting and I guess rather difficult side study about A.E. May I ask what tool you use to write the Hieratic signs. I believe the A.E. used a kind of reed they made a sort of brush out. I donít suppose that writing instrument still exist, unless you are able to make it yourself.

Thanks for the link, very great

Welcome

There's always been some disagreement as to what they used. My own sense is, they probably alternated between reed pens and brushes (depending on the scribe's individual preference). Some papyrae were clearly written with chisel-nib reed pens (due to the crispness of the edges of the characters), others appear more ambiguous. I've been practicing with Pentel brush pens and calligraphy pens.

Thanks for the website. I am going to start learning hieratic too when I get the chance. Here is a website with some translation help and lessons in writing it.
