Abstract

The history of modern European comics began in the first half of the 19th century, as a representation of ideas by images, often combined with text or other visual information. The object of this research is represented by an issue of the Nerbini comics series “L’avventuroso”, pressed in 1936. For the first time, non-invasive diagnostic techniques were used to identify the materials of the support and of the coloured substances adopted in printed comics publications. The multi-analytical campaign combined visible-UV photography, FTIR in μATR mode, and XRF (single point and mapping).
