Since creating important replicas of the Treaty of Waitangi documents with New Zealand Micrographic Services in 2005, Daniel and NZMS have been gone on to make replicas of other historical documents, including the 1835 Declaration on Independence of the United Tribes of New Zealand, and the Malone Documents for Sir Peter Jackson's Great War Ehibition.
Below are images from some of these replica projects.
Historical Insurance Document
A significant family heirloom of an early insurance policy document for a woollen and worsted manufacturing company in Manchester dating from the early 1870s.
1835 Declaration of Independence of the United Tribes of New Zealand
Daniel created replicas of both pages of the 1835 Declaration of Independence of the United Tribes of New Zealand, for Archives New Zealand, for display in the National Gallery. Having replicas means that both sides of the document can be viewed, and the originals can be 'rested' from exposure to light.
Evening Post: The End of WWII
Replicas of the Evening Post Special Edition of the 8th of May, 1945, marking the end of WWII.
A precious family heirloom. A couple of challenges with this replica...
The original was in two pieces - the envelope flap had become separated from the main part - so, starting with the scans from NZMS, I had to digitally 'repair' the envelope back into one piece (front and back, separately, but matching). I also had to digitally 'disassemble' the envelope, splaying it out to its flat shape, using the scans from both sides of the the original to create the outer 'side', and using parts of the scans to digitally re-create the inner 'side'. After some trial and error to find the perfect print regristration, the envelope was printed double-sided onto a single sheet of paper, cut to shape, and physically re-assembled into envelope form.
So there was more to this replica than meets the eye at first glance!
