British Library Watermarks Project
The project is a collaboration between members of the Conservation and Imaging teams from the British Library Qatar Foundation Partnership. We have developed tools which highlight and reveal watermarks found within a series of ship’s journals dating from 1605-1705, relating to East India Company’s voyages. My role has involved drawing 78 watermarks that vary in design and complexity. Read about the process and techniques used to make these watermarks visible on the library's Digital Scholarship blog.
