The Book of the Dead was often written in up & down columns. The text was mostly simplified linear hieroglyphics or old fashioned hieratic script... wow that's some big words but basically it wasn't anything different than any other writing they used on any other important document. On the picture to the right is the a written record of the weighing of the heart ceremony. This is recorded on papyri.
