Review: Signs of the Inka Khipu: Binary Coding in the Andean Knotted-String RecordsUser Review - heather - Goodreads
really interesting study of inka record keeping/writing system. dense and scholarly (but colloquial at times). not something to read as an introduction to the subject, but a highly useful resource for anyone into indigenous andean studies. Read full review
