Museum of Science and Industry


In Washington D.C., at the Folger Shakespeare Library, there is a book bearing a faded and obscured handwritten name that scholars have struggled to decipher: the signature of a (if not the) “Wm Shakespeare.” As part of the Lazarus Project, a group from the University of Mississippi recently spent their spring break using modern imaging techniques to investigate the writing!

The group created images of the writing using cameras that can capture wavelengths of light outside the range of human vision, and software more typically used by the CIA. See the images they produced, as well as a neat animation of their results, through the link below!
