So, like many others here, I am currently involved with constructing my grail diary.

I have read every thread here I possibly can and I have noticed a common trait to each of them.

Some questions asked simply go unanswered

I dont think those questions are being ignored, however I do believe the questions simply get buried or past over with newer comments or progress reports.

With the mods permission I would like to start a questions or instructions only thread here so those questions will now have attention and be answered.

Please do not post your progress or finished diary on this thread unless it's for a picture reference to answer a given question.

Thank you for your consideration.
Kevin

So my first set of questions has partially been answered by some and a special thanks to Pascal who helped guide me in the right direction.

1. Was ink.
Answer was use a calligraphy set or fountain pen with permanent ink that won't run when wet.

I used this set and purchased additional ink packs.

2. Was paper to use, however I ended up buying a blank diary off etsy.

Here's my unanswered question.

The unfolding map seen on many diary limelight s

I didn't see this in the movie (unless I missed it)
Is this idealized and where might I find reference to this.

Thanks in advance

If anyone needs scans from ”Quest for the Eternal”, I have a copy and some scans. I can do higher res these days.

Please post a picture of which map you mean. There's four (maybe five) maps in the production props and all of them fold out in one way or the other, but many story diaries use other maps too and I want to be sure we're on the same page.

I dont have picture handy. I've seen these in other books. I didn't realize there's more than 1 and I haven't seen where to insert or glue a map in any of the instructions.

In a description of a diary you listed, it says multiple fold out maps.

So I would say all of the fold out maps seeing how I only thought there was 1. Where do they go, what are they, where can I find them and are these idealized seeing how I either didn't see it or missed it in the movies.

Thank you so much for helping me.

The Appleton & Co Map of Egypt and Sinai from 1883(-ish) is what you need and there are four maps that are derived from it that go in the hero/production diaries. They're all cropped from sections of the same overall map and a couple of them can be seen during parts of the movie when either Indy or Henry are flipping through it.

This was part of a recent discussion on COW and a member there recently posted this link:
