Ken talks handwritten journals and letters: what makes them valuable and how his team at the shop goes about researching them. We'll delve into a Caribbean voyage with a magical conclusion and a utopian community in bucolic West Roxbury, with a side trip to a certain famously far out festival of the late 1960's. Learn whether your journal might also have the 'write' stuff on this week's #brattlecast, an episode to write home about!
Grab your magnifying glass and join Ken as he investigates famous fakes, dubious documents, and suspicious signatures. In this episode we learn all about authentication: why who you know can matter more than what you know, the dangers of wishful thinking, and why most items simply aren’t worth faking. We’ll also delve into the weird world of collectible forgeries.
