    Als and Dolphin, What kind of paper is that? Like onion skin.. The things we used to trace on as kids? I think my printer will eat them up... Denise

    FRST, Transparencies are clear plastic sheets... You can buy them specifically for use in a printer

    I just copied and pasted the pic into MSPaint, then 'cut' the 2 squares out, and 'pasted' them side-by-side, off to the side... The 2 squares are *exactly* the same color!

    Ditto that They are pretty hard plastic, too, so, your printer shouldn't eat them

    Default Here is as god as any

    On the subject of checking the pages out throughly, combined with the don't fear the dark motif, has anyone tried to read the book in dim lighting or complete dark? I have no book and am going off information posted here. I am hoping maybe one page wil be laced with photosensitive ink (the glow in the dark green) and help us there. After all, all you would have to do is read it. Just a thought.

    I tried flipping through the book in the dark. Didn't see anything. But a good idea nonetheless. I keep coming back to Stadther's suggestion to "not be afraid of the dark," too, but don't know what to make of it. Are the darklings a key? Is nighttime somehow important to understanding the story? Are the dark lines and marks in the illustrations essential to understanding the puzzles? You got me.

    Remember that photosensitive ink must be exposed to light first and then read in the dark. If the book has been closed before you take it into the dark, the ink may not light up

    I have done this with Page 77 and its flip side, Page 78 and it just comes out squiggles. I will most likely try some more but as of now, I can't get anything.

    I overlay by scanning in the photos then using Photoshop- by changing the opacity of the layers, you can onion skin them on top of each other.

    Sounds a little complicated, I pretty sure he says No special knowledge or tools.
