Quipus are books from the ancient Inca empire in Peru. But these books are so special, they are not made on paper, or leather, or parchment, they are not even carved on stone. These books are made of colorful yarn strings attached to a main cord, and instead of letters or numbers, they used knots! Lets learn how they were done.
