    Default a subtle clue

    I think that logically if the author were to make 12 separate clues leading to 12 separate treasure and he would make the puzzles in a logical order. Example the author may first make the spider puzzle then first make the aunt puzzle ect ect ect. IF he was making the puzzles in a chronological order the dates on the pictures may to organize our thoughts. Example I don't think he would make a particular jewel's puzzles in several differnt years. So all the "Stadther 03" could be referring to similiar jewels. Just a thought

    Good idea but its unlikely to lead anywhere since of all the pictures in the book less then half have a date on them...of those we have the following,

    Inside Front Cover, 03 ( continuous with inside back cover )
    pg 10, 99
    pg 19, 03
    pg 31, 03
    pg 33, 01
    pg 36, 03
    pg 39, 03 ( continuous with pg 38 )
    pg 41, 01
    pg 44, 99
    pg 46, 03
    pg 93, 04

    That leaves only 11 pictures meaning that some would have to share clues assuming each puzzle has a clue in a signed piture, and 4 years total meaning you would have to figure out in which order he did each of the pictures from a given year.

    I've actually found 12 signed pages (not counting the inside cover (is that a page?)).
    Code:
    10      Foreward            MS	      99
    19      Tools               STADTHER	03
    31      Faerie Letters      STADTHER	03
    33      Forest Meeting      STADTHER	01
    36      Faerie Box          STADTHER	03
    38-9    Nomenclature        STADTHER	03
    41      Faerie Mess         STADTHER	01
    44      Faerie Twins        STADTHER	99
    46      Yorah               STADTHER	03
    83      Ana Trapped         STADTHER	03
    93      Crystal Pook        MJS	     04
    101     Ending              MJS	     04
    I stopped once I found 12, so there may be more, but I thought I should post this correction.

    Here are some questions I still have:

    1. What's the signifigance of the wide range of dates? Could they be clues? Do they signify that paintings had to be re-created for some reason? Does MS perfer painting in odd numbered years?

    2. Why are other painted illustrations not signed? The center of 55 is hand drawn, but no sig; 80 certainly looks like a painting (am I missing a sig here?); it seems like the pages with heavy digital illustration are not signed; p10 contradicts this.

    3. What's the signifigance of the signature content: MS -> STADTHER -> MJS? What's MS's middle name? Could it be the best movie password of all time: Joshua?

    Wow, I'm so thrilled to have inspired such movie trivia regurgitation. That's so much more satisfying that finding a token

    Do you guys think Cindy625's point about the author's last name on p78 counts as a signature? If so, that makes 12 signatures visible and one hidden. Why does that sound familiar?
