Historical Letterlocking: The Art and Secrecy of Letterwriting

2014 - Las Vegas, NV

Letterlocking refers to the process by which a substrate (such as paper, parchment or papyrus) is folded and secured to function as its own sending device before (and after) the invention of the envelope. Letterlocking is part of a larger and longer information security tradition, which includes Mesopotamian clay bullae (10,000 B.C.E.) and Bitcoin (2009). Jana’s presentation is an introduction to simple non-adhesive styles found in early modern archival records. The structures shown have components found in many of the 250 different styles and formats (and their variations) Jana identified in 2000 within the Vatican Secret Archive, Fondo Veneto, Sezione II (FVII).
