This is absolutely amazing. I have always held a curious obsession with the Voynich Manuscript, and have generally used PDF copies of the pages to satisfy my intrigue. This copy, however, is priceless to an avid lover of the manuscript. The pages are in 1:1 ratio, which may seem small on the pages of this copy, but it really gives the full experience of truly holding the real thing. The essays accompanying the vivid and crisp images of the manuscript really add to the knowledge wrapped up in this release. The book itself is sturdy and well made. If you are a lover of the voynich manuscript don't hesitate to pick up a copy. This thing is well worth the money (but if you can get it on sale it's even better)!
