Video: Recreating the Voynich Manuscript

Here’s a bit of shareable content. I like to watch ‘how books are made’ videos, and this one is a different, since it illustrates how Yale University Press created a facsimile of The Voynich Manuscript, a book written in an unknown script by an unknown author, with no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich.

If you’d like to embed the video, here’s the code:
