To see how GNT mss changed over the centuries, there is no better book (
with loads of photographs ) than:

Metzger, Bruce M. Manuscripts of the Greek Bible. An Introduction to
Palaeography. Oxford: O.U.P, 1981.

and on the evolution of how Greek in general was written, punctuation and
accents included, see:
Thompson, E.M. A Handbook of Greek and Latin Palaeography. 1901 reprint.
Chicago: Ares, n.d. SBN: 0890050945 [ this is currently available from
Amazon at $20 ]
