VERSE 70, FULL SIZED AND HIGH RESOLUTION IMAGE TO DOWNLOAD PLUS AN ADDITIONAL HI RES IMAGE


CROP IMAGE FROM TITLE PAGE





INSCRIPTION PAGE



 You can download this page and then examine it at your leisure, there is code to be found in the inscription, in the illustration, in an apparent dark line that runs from bottom to top, and the left-hand edge of the inscription page. Start at the bottom of the page and then magnify the image gradually. The line between the two pages is worth examining, rotate the image 90 degrees anti-clockwise and examine that line gradually magnifying what you see on that line.



TITLE PAGE


This is a classic image that shows the way that codes are concealed within the Text on the title page and also within the small bunch of grapes and leaves. 

Download and magnify what you see, when seeing below some of the examples of micro written codes on this page and within the text letters.



Whilst the images are a little fuzzy in parts, you can still make out individual letters and numbers carefully hidden within the Text on the title page.

The image below is known to some but not at this resolution:

THE TAMAM SHUD TORN SLIP< CODE PLAIN AS DAY


THE TORN SLIP AND IT'S HIDDEN CODE



 The process used starts with a high-resolution image, we then moved on and applied a technique used in the Art world, Infrared Transmission. A good quality close up image was then taken at an oblique angle and it showed what you see above, but it doesn't become really plain until you rotate the image through 90 degrees and then crop it:




The image above is the first, more on the way...

THE CODE PAGE BREAKTHROUGH


  THE LONG AWAITED CODE PAGE  BREAKTHROUGH



The image above is a high-resolution scan, I used Infrared Transmission and a macro lens camera. 

You can download this but once again please quote the source if you intend to use it on a blog page or website.

You are able to magnify this image and I believe that you will be surprised at the detail. This has to be a short post for now, I will be adding more to it in the next few days.

AND JUST LIKE THAT, PART 3 VERSE & TITLE PAGE AND INSCRIPTION FILLED WITH MICRO WRITING. UPDATED 18Jan

 

VERSE 70 MICROWRITING 

IRT TECHNIQUE





Due to the Infrared technique and the fact that it removes all excess ink and covering, what you see above is a mass of micro letters and numbers assembled to form the shape of the bunch of grapes and leaves on the Inscription page of the Boxall book.


Below is another example from the Title Page is a cropped image of the Authors name OMAR KHAYYAM:





In the highlighted areas of the image to the left, you can see how microcode has been hidden in the typed text of the Title page, whilst by using strong lighting, you can see disturbances within the letters, the infrared transmission technique clearly shows the code.

Decrypting what we see here is another question. We might find some clues in the SOE manual on codes and ciphers. Any volunteers?
















                              
Amazing image of the tassel made from letters and numbers.




We have some sharpening to do and lift some of the colours


More to come for this post...

AND JUST LIKE THAT, PART 2, THE CODE PAGE INFRARED

 


Using the new Infrared technique we are obtaining vastly improved results. The above is the letter X over the two crossed lines in the centre of the page.



The letters A and O from line 2 above,

And finally, below is the letter A from line 1 of the code page:


Next post we take a look at the Verse 70 Boxall book with the inscription and the Title page.

AND JUST LIKE THAT THE HIDDEN CODE IS REVEALED.... PART 1.

 

THE MAGIC OF INFRARED


The image above was taken using a mobile phone, a Samsung S9 + It's a close-up view of the signature of the Manager of the 1941 Hay Internment Camp Banknote project, Richard Stahl. What you are looking at is real micro writing.

You will notice that in the top image all you can see is a series of tiny letters and numbers that form the signature and that's because the new technique I used has the effect of neutralising or removing the upper layer of ink that formed Mr. Stahl's actual signature. There's so much more to be said about his and other banknotes from the Hay Internment Camp but more on that in another post.

The banknotes were designed by George A Teltscher, an outstanding designer who oversaw the design from the outset and had the notes, unsigned, printed by a local newspaper publisher using, I think a process known as Zincography.

The cropped unsigned notes were delivered back to the camp where the various people assigned to the task physically signed each one in ink.

The micro writing was part of that process and that process was later to be used by the British SOE and described in one of their manuals.


GEORGE A TELTSCHER & THE INK H  PROCESS


Mr.Teltscher returned to the UK on his release, in early 1942 at which time he began working tor British the Militari one story is that he went to work making maps and propaganda leaflets but the evidence says that it was he that designed the technique and process described in the clip from the SOE Codes and Ciphers manual in 1943.

Please note that SOE forwarded many of their codes and ciphers to Australia in 1943, which was prior to the meeting of Alf, Jestyn, and others at the Clifton Gardens Hotel in mid-1944.


Below the actual banknote from which the above signature came:




HISTORY OF OUR INFRARED PROJECT

In the past we've discussed the two main types of infrared photography that are used in document examination, Infrared Luminescence, and Reflected Infrared. the images shown here today use another kind of infrared photography.

In recent times, I have been researching an alternative technique, it's known as 'Transmitted InfraRed'. The method is used most commonly in the examination of artworks and interestingly, in the examination of old documents. The process involves putting an infrared source light behind the artwork or document and an IR sensitive camera in front, an IR filter can be placed in between.

This process has impressed me greatly, I only wish I had learned about it sooner. Not only has it done a great job on the Hay Banknote it works equally as well on other items.
