Codes have fueled wars and illicit trysts, guarded the secrets of polite bankers and sinister societies, and even brought some empires to their knees. In this incredibly comprehensive atlas of cryptographic methods, from ancient runes to cutting-edge computer security, Fred Wrixon takes us on a marvelous tour of code-making and -breaking through the centuries.

Writing backwards (as above) might be the simplest mode of graphic disguise, but this book contains hundreds of fascinating—and increasingly difficult—variations on sign, script, and linguistic cloaks. Describing the evolution of each system and the illustrious figures (e.g., Charlemagne, Poe, Turing) who pioneered or conquered them, Wrixon illuminates the world’s most famous masking processes (Alberti’s Disk, Voynich manuscript), as well as the spirit of genius or dark treachery in which they were conceived. You’ll also have a chance to crack, or simply create, codes of your own. Chock full of illustrations, bios, and quizzes, this capacious book will keep puzzle fanatics and history buffs occupied for ages.
