My substitution ciphers are designed to be solved by anyone, but the initial learning curve is a little steep. Patience along with your desire to solve one of my cryptograms is paramount. I published these educational materials as PDF files. I use that format because there are instances where you will need to print a page to view the examples.

I included these PDF files here so you can understand the solving procedures. If you purchase one of my cryptograms, a thumb drive containing the original digital files and all the PDF’s will be sent to you.

IMPORTANT – Trithemian Web™ Owners: Make sure you thoroughly read and understand all the instructions before you try to decipher your Trithemian Web™ Cryptogram or you will, more than likely, be unsuccessful. I recommend you read the Procedures page as well for deciphering hints.

Consider not sharing your digital file with anyone if you want to maintain the exclusivity of your Trithemian Web™ Cryptogram – its title, body composition and halftones – if included. It’s totally up to you.
