I have a book here by Donald Jackson which is called "Van beitel
tot vulpen" and is the dutch translation of "The Story of Writing"
and was originally published in 1980 (dutch translation is from
1981, Gaade Uitgevers, Veenendaal).
It has indeed a very accurate description and drawings of the
process.
