Many thanks for  the response and info.  I get it now.   I knew it was possible– a few years ago I began a mini project and I encountered this very issue (a  part of a watermark hidden by ink of text).  Although slightly different, I knew it was possible to do a separation in antique art, re the paint layers, and I had discussed it also with someone using PXRF (scanning) on pottery —  but  what you describe is pretty straight forward –  I will have to get your book! …update:   I just ordered it.   Probably I  can be more engaged in my queries when I have the book in hand.  Looking forward to that,

Stay well, and really glad you have this  up and running.  I have been very dedicated to  the concept of   authenticating in codicology, and this will make a difference I feel.

best regards,

Use of QR Codes

Question from Dr Brent Elliott – I have now finished reading Revealing Watermarks, and it does a wonderful job of making everything clear – both the techniques involved and the significance of the watermarks and other paper marks.  I have never before seen QR codes used in footnotes – is this your original idea, or have other people done it first? Anyway, I hope the book is a great success and is read internationally. Many thanks for my copy.

A few other books include QR Codes, such as my 72 In His Name, which is also from The Academic Studies Press. Of course one of the great advantages of QR Codes is that they allow quick access to even very large digital images.
