How does a sign represent something other than itself? How do we understand the meaning of a written symbol? Can clothes be a sign? Can sounds? Signs and symbols represent ideas and objects. Over time, these marks and gestures have multiplied into a complex network of images. Signs, Symbols and Ciphers takes the reader on journey of discovery through the intriguing universe of symbols.
