I received this photo from an acquaintance.
The writing is illegible in my copy also.

   What it is?


What you see is what I see.

Is here something here with meaning?

The red marks seem to be drawn around the illegible writing, so if there is meaning in the red marks that is independent of the illegible writing, it would have to be in the details and not in the gross form.

It's "art". The red marks are decorations applied to the manuscript, all framed for display. I think it's unlikely, but possible, that the first red mark may be an ideogram from some language, but overall they do not appear to be a second script overlaying the text.

Google knows where this artwork is displayed: Madrid, Reina Sofia Museum. The article is from a photo-essay in Korean, but as best Google-translate can tell us, the art may be attributed to Picasso.

Are You Ready for GDPR?

With the GDPR deadline set for May 25, 2018, many organizations are ill-prepared due to uncertainty about the criteria for compliance. According to a recent WatchGuard survey, a staggering 37% of respondents don't even know if their organization needs to comply with GDPR. Do you?

Clearly somebody has laid out each page of the original text in proper reading order, and framed the pages.  Perhaps whoever applied the red "glyphs" did not do so in that same order, or maybe there is no order to them.  I wonder whether anybody has ever put all of the pages together and riffled through them as a flip-pad, or photographed the individual pages and made a digital flip-pad animation, to see if any "story" springs out at them.

I think this is simply a case of somebody on the edge of insanity doodling.  Once famous as an artist, everything that person does is then construed as "art".  Such is the fervour for this type of adulation that an artist like Picasso could have coughed up blood onto a napkin and wiped his butt on a tea towel, and some clown in later years would frame them and call them "art".  Even worse, throngs of people would stand in front of the framed "artwork" with their heads cocked and eyes half closed trying to interpret their deeper meanings.

Red felt tip pen is great for emphasising text on pages, and for doodles too.
