Hi David--

There is a LOT of material on the topic of writing systems.
Two interesting places to start are:

D. Schmandt-Besserat, Before Writing:. U of Texas Press. 1992 (two volumes)

R. Harris. The origin of writing. Open Court. 1986.

David Olson has written extensively on this topic, primarily from secondary

I am unsure of best sources that delve into origins of writing in China
which were more or less co-incident with
events in Euphrates area.
