Paleobabble had a link to some new information about the Voynich Manuscript. For those of you who are interested in esoteric texts or making props for movies or RPGs, this manuscript should be an inspiration. I know the unraveling of a centuries old mystery certainly piques my interest.
The Voynich Manuscript has been known to the public for only a century although it appears much older. This book contains fantastic drawings of people and animals and more tantalizing, a text in an unknown language and/or a secret code. The Voynich Manuscript has been labeled as an outright modern fraud, a secret book of magic, a scholarly or artistic hoax and many other things in the popular press, the most specious link the Voynich Manuscript to Atlantis or space aliens.
