Digital restoration workbook

Soeben erschien ein Digital Restoration Workbook (pdf, 58,2 MB): "The Digital Image Archive of Medieval Music has pioneered the use of mainstream commercial software to recover damaged and obscured readings from manuscript sources which have been captured by high-resolution digital imaging. As the facilities required to create high quality digital images become more widely available in libraries and other repositories, increasing numbers of scholars are looking to this medium to reveal information that has either been obscured by conventional document restoration processes, or has proved beyond the capacity of conventional restoration to reveal. The main advantage of digital restoration is the lack of invasive procedure on the original document, and the provision of an image that may be more revealing than the original".
