Given a detached signature mydoc.sig of a document mydoc produced with

gpg --local-user <GPG_RECIPIENT> --detach-sig mydoc

How can I create a printable output of this signature in base16 (as when exporting a private key with paperkey)?

The ASCII armor signature is a convenient output to be printed,

Obviously the following is not working

  cat mydoc.sig | paperkey
  Unable to find secret key packet

I am looking for a output like the one below:

          od -t x1 mydoc.sig
          

          produces similar output that should be just as usable.

          As you presumably know since you mention it in your question, you can also create an ASCII-armored signature using

          gpg --detach-sig -a mydoc
          

          I don’t know whether you’d consider that good enough for printing as-is though. There’s not much point piping that through od, it will include a CRC but it will also be quite a bit longer than the piped binary signature.
