Puzzles of the Voynich Manuscript

December 19, 2016 Leave a comment Go to comments

I just published the guide “Puzzles of the Voynich Manuscript” as an ebook on Amazon. A paperback version is also available. From the blurb:

This illustrated guide to the Voynich Manuscript is targeted mainly at those who have recently come across the book and are wondering what all the fuss is about, and why, after more than a century of effort, nobody has cracked its code yet. It should also be useful as a set of tests for those who believe they may have cracked the code, so that they can see how their solution matches up against each of the puzzles or notable features described. And finally, it is hopefully of interest to those already familiar with the manuscript – perhaps they will find something new or thought provoking within.


Readers of this blog, who tend to be Voynich experts already, will probably not find much (if anything) new in the guide, as it is principally intended for newcomers to the Manuscript.

    “Puzzles of the Voynich Manuscript” has just the right amount of even-handed and concise information to give a solid platform for beginning researchers. It was a worthwhile read for me, as well.

      Thanks for your valuable review, Knox! If you have time to add your review on Amazon, that would be fantastic, and much appreciated.

    Ref https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/The_Voynich_Manuscript/F1r
    You made a comment about alphabet visible in f1r-right margin: “a, b, c, d, e, f … o, p, q …”. It looks like someone from old owners tried to decipher VM. Were they dated at different time?

      Quite possibly .. I don’t think that we know.
