Multispectral Imaging (MSI) is an image capture technology that can be used on faded manuscripts and is able to reveal non-visible, destroyed, and palimpsest text. Content that is no longer visible to the human eye can now be recovered digitally with this technology. This technology has been used on medieval manuscripts, maps, frescos, cave paintings, and even the newspaper field diaries of Dr. Livingston.
Jessica Tribbett came to the field of MSI through book arts and the study of book material and structural history at the University of Iowa’s Joint Book Students program. She has worked and trained in the field of MSI over the course of the last six years and will discuss the basics of MSI, past and upcoming projects, and the future of MSI in Colorado.
