Hello "Ibn Rushd" Glad to read that., that is a post with information on origin of books., I am just curious here when did they first publish these books?Ibn Rushd wrote:Books in the past were very expensive to make. With papyrus you had to crush and flatten the shoots, and then allow them to dry and the fibres bond to each shoot to make a sheet. Then there is ink production: Christians used chicken egg yolks, and Jews used wasp's eggs as the binder (source of protein, think of baking). The first modern Bible manuscript in Western Christendom was commissioned by Donald Jackson, the scribe to Queen Elizabeth II, in 1998. It is finished, and includes the Catholic canon, in the Catholic order, containing the NRSV translation (this is the only translation that has been approved worldwide for all Christian denominations). Here are some links:
Saint John's Bible
See the SJB

In this video he shows how the ink is made. This is the same way as monks have been making it for over 1000 yrs.
A little video Jackson made about calligraphy. For this new manuscript, he invented a new font, which all the other scribes had to learn.

The script on the larger bone appears to be a writing exercise, with repeated words “Qatshah” and “Muhammed.” Qatshah is both a place name and a personal surname. It seems that someone named Muhammad Qatshah, perhaps a child or a newly literate Bedouin, was practicing the writing of his name. Although neither of these pieces has been dated, and it is unlikely that they are from antiquity, they represent an ancient Arabic tradition of using bone as writing material. Gift of Dr. Aziz S. and Mrs. Lola Atiya.
