the code mark-up
The one thing that hasn’t been satisfactorily explained by those who disbelieve Cramer’s findings, is why the images we have of the individual letters look like they do.
Many believe the code to be an acrostic, in other words the faint indentations Leane found were capital letters, pure and simple, and being so slightly indented the decision was made by the police to photograph them, develop the print, mark-up the print then photograph the result and release the marked-up image to the press. This is what we are looking at.
By marking up, I’d imagine all you would need do is trace over each letter in the photo.
The letter A is three straight lines, the letter P is one straight line and a half-circle etc … but the letters (below) don’t look like such a simple trace, and they appear to have been done by more than one person, or by different techniques.
The letter P for instance: there are two mark-up layers.
The letter R, why do the lines waver? Same with N.
But why don’t the lines waver in P?
This marking-up would have been a careful exercise done under supervision; the book was evidence in an open case involving a mysterious death and care would have been taken with the process, the end result officially approved, the book itself taken away. Unmarked.
What was the mark-up marking over?
