Filled with lavish illustrations and hundreds of full-color photographs, this all-in-one family reference provides hours of fun and entertainment for any reader. Narrated in a unique, compelling way, The Secrets of Codes offers a comprehensive survey of international codes, explaining how the codes work, why they were invented, and how they have been cracked. The few competitive books available define codes all too narrowly. This exciting and eye-opening book looks at all the myriad codes that are hidden in plain view: alphabets, religious imagery, maps, diagrams, etiquette, gang signs, text messaging . . . even the iPod in your pocket and the carpet under your feet have codes to impart!
