process for solving [personal profile] melannen's manuscript

1. Stare at pages.

2. Pick out "Charlemagne" and "Byzantine" and "priestly."

3. Try to figure out what corresponds to A. And E.

4. Think you've figured out what E is.

5. Wait, no, that can't be "Charlemagne."

6. Does that say "Higgledy Piggledy?"

7. It's [personal profile] melannen OF COURSE IT DOES

8. But if it's a font, why aren't all of the Gs the same?

9. WAIT.

10. The missing bits from THAT G are in THAT OTHER G. It's not a font.

11. Save image to desktop.

12. Open image in MS Paint.

13. Color pick to set background color.

14. Cut out half of text, overlay on other half, matching illustrations.

15. Decode!

Like I said, I totally cheated, but I am terribly interested in seeing how you managed to halve the letters to begin with, and also interested in seeing what the ease of translation would be with more common words--I think the only reason I got it was that "Higgledy Piggledy" was so distinctive.

... okay, I can just *barely* do it if I take my glasses off and sit far too close to the screen.

I can lock the frames with my glasses on though, but nothing else!
