JACK [rolls eyes, passes the book to his mother]: It’s not about anything, it’s unreadable.
🙂 * Solution of the Voynich Manuscript, by Leo Levitov I’ve been meaning to buy a copy of this for myself for ages, and finally got round to it.
JACK APPROACHES A BOOKSELLER WITH A MOUSTACHE AND TWINKLING EYES. So what priceless Mac Guffin will I exchange our possessions for this week? [He brandishes the Voynich Manuscript] Behold – the world’s most unreadable manuscript! Of course, as a cipher historian who cannot for the life of me see any actual connection between La Buse and “his” cryptogram, there could be no place set for me at that particular table – for realistically, where would the mystery be without the cryptogram?
If (like me) you’re a pirate museum trivia fan, you’ll be interested to hear that the film-makers did their talking heads interviews in the Musée de la Marine and the Musée Cognacq-Jay (both in Paris), as well as on “L’Étoile du Roy“, a 46m replica of an 18th century British sixth-rate frigate that is a well-known tourist attraction in Saint-Malo (it was previously used as HMS Indefatigable in the TV series “Hornblower”).
* Sleepwalkers, by Arthur Koestler A readable (but now rather dated) account of the development of astronomy.
* Humanism, Scholasticism, and the Theology and Preaching of Domenico de’ Domenichi in the Italian Renaissance, by Martin F. I wanted to know more about Domenico de’ Domenichi (who owned Vat. 1291), and this is probably the best book on the subject out there. Stinger I bought this to cast a light on what was going on in Rome circa 1460-1470, where some of my secondary Voynich research paths are now starting to vaguely lead towards.
(THOUGH AS THE LIGHTS COME UP, IT INCREASINGLY RESEMBLES A MODERN-DAY CRACK DEN) JACK’S MUM: Woe is me! TOWN CRYER: Even as we speak, insurance company agents are combing the land to track him down and bring him to justice. JACK: Excuse me, sir, but have you seen a curious traveller? But while I don’t hold out a lot of hope for cryptological accuracy here, I’m sure the production will look beautiful.
