100% do tell how? I'm only swayed to the six cause when I blow it up, and especially in b&w it looks like 6...I believe you, just wondering what I'm missing...
Easy. Just look at how he rights his numbers elsewhere
Last # is definitely a 6. Looking at the book, it can be read either way, but enlarged (or looked at with a magnifying glass) it is not written at all like the 8. But this takes me back to my original thought: If it's that ambiguous, is it really a clue?

goldhunter. Maybe the higher powers gave me a gift to read the orange book correctly. Yes, it says ISBN. Yes, as astree has said, it is not where ISBN numbers go. It is not the actual ISBN number for The Lake in The Woods. ISBN numbers are either 10 or 13 digits, they also show a dash. Im leaving the orange book alone, its a distraction. I have my own interpretation of RED YELLOW BOOK. I think Stockwell went a tad bit heavy on the misdirects, hence the 11 years of zero concrete leads. Funny thing is they planned on doing more hunts towards the beginning, but since this one has gone so long, coupled with low sales, I would imagine they are reconsidering. The problem with "multiple components feeding into a Master Riddle" is you have to 1) figure out how many there are 2)figure out whether they are linear and work from front of the book to back (like the Masquerade riddle did) 3) Hope that you don't have to rearrange the order of the message. IMO, this puzzle is harder than MAsquerade. I think this occurred in part by the authors making the visual clues too subjective, coupled with treasure hunters using techniques from other hunts that are probably way too advanced for this puzzle.
Keep in mind this is just me thinking out loud. I don’t have the answer , yet. But if there is anything I know about artists and painters is that they like to be original. The same may go for the construction of the puzzle.

goldhunter. Your welcome. Seems to be a lot of confusion on the numbers and letters. I have a really good high res scan that I can zoom in. If there is a number that is suspect, it’s the last number on Pemetic Mtn on Harley’s map
