How to draw hieroglyphs

 

 

Complement to the book "Hieroglyphic Egyptian. A Practical Grammar of Middle Egyptian", 2015, by Claude Obsomer.

Besides memorising hieroglyphs, one should also learn how to draw them in a both simple and accurate way.
For the 200 signs most commonly found, animations showing how to draw the 200 most common signs are available on this page. These animations are based on Ancient Egyptian Calligraphy, by H.G. Fisher.
