J. Herbin Egyptian Calame Pen
Egyptian Calame Calame with 2 sharpened ends
In 3500 B.C. in Uruk, Mesopotamia, calame was used to write cuneiform signs on clay tablets. Later, in 2200 B.C. in Egypt people began to write on papyrus. Reeds from the Nile were sliced into very thin stripes, then assembled and dried under heavy weighs. At the same time, ink was made by mixing lampblack with oil. Describing the hieroglyphs, Champollion remarked this writing is fugitive, symbolic, and phonetic."
