An elegant set based on the mysterious Voynich Manuscript

I have always found the Voynich Manuscript to be a fascinating document. Regardless of its questioned authenticity, this document dates back to the 15th century and has long been a topic of discussion for its art, unknown origins, and cryptographic puzzle. If you're interested in learning more, I highly recommend The Histocrat's The Voynich Manuscript video

This set utilizes the Voynich 101 (V101) font developed by Glenn Claston, allowed under Public Domain usage. Given that the Voynich Manuscript has never been deciphered or translated (if it can be), further liberties were taken on certain characters (not necessarily mapped 1:1 to its ASCII Latin counterpart) for either aesthetic or functional reasons (such as overlapping on homing bumps).

I will be taking a look at the IC form responses to finalize the alpha and mod kitting but likely not. I suspect that will be a less popular combination, I do not want to create too many base/alpha/mod kits, and this should be a fairly affordable set as-is even if you buy base + novelty mods.

I had decided against such a kit for a couple of reasons:

1. the complexity, aesthetic, and issues from trying to place the tertiary (and on some keys quaternary) legends required for this set to have a NorDE kit
2. the existence of the mono voynich alphas serve as a kind of agnostic alpha set such that language configurations not explicitly supported here are at least not forced to use literally incorrect keys

very cool set! Great inspiration - I first heard of the Voynich manuscript in the Adam Curtis documentary https://watchdocumentaries.com/cant-get-you-out-of-my-head/ - never knew there was a font  :cool:

bonus nerd fact - mrs Voynich was the daughter of mr. Boole - of the 'Boolean'

Great looking set. No numpad kit is very disappointing tho. I'd also suggest using text + icon mods because busy alphas and minimal mods looks unbalanced. If not, I'd prefer OG alignment instead of Dixie mods.

Kitting is excellent.

Renders are beautiful.

Design and aesthetic are both out of this world.

I do have a concern though - how confident are you that Milky Way's dye sub can handle the intricacy of this set? They're obviously new on the scene, and have shipped a couple of basic sets but nothing this complex. It'd be sad to see all the fantastic design work lost to sloppy dye sub.

Can mw use different colored base plastic to avoid 5 sided dyesub? I enjoy the base kit quite a bit but we've all seen the woes of 5 side from every manu thus far. nice set.

This set does not require reverse dyesub  :D

I do have a concern though - how confident are you that Milky Way's dye sub can handle the intricacy of this set? They're obviously new on the scene, and have shipped a couple of basic sets but nothing this complex. It'd be sad to see all the fantastic design work lost to sloppy dye sub.

Great question. I definitely had concerns about the ability to properly execute the novelty mod dyesub. I confirmed before deciding definitively on using MW that they can and will provide samples before end of GB. We are shooting for having them before GB even starts but there may need to be a little wiggle room there. They seemed confident in their ability to execute these novelties though, and samples before GB are what I need to put my own mind at ease. I'm sure that helps others as well.

Thanks a lot for not including punctuation symbols in the voynich alphas kit! (And going for novelties for the whole kit). As a non-US user, itís quite annoying when a set goes totally originalÖ except for punctuation symbols, which suddenly makes it US-only, even though itís not supposed to.

Arg, I didnít want to add another set to the list of GBs Iím waiting for, but this one looks amazing (and I love the concept).

I totally agree, even as a US keyboard user I dislike when standard punctuation symbols break the aesthetic consistency of a themed alpha kit. Thank you for the kind words!

   Oh goodie - another elvish set!  But wait, it's even more interesting than that....

   IMO all the modern-looking arrows should be removed from the "voynich mods" set.  They are not in the style of the manuscript and clash with the script of the keyset, and nobody needs them to find shift/enter/tab/backspace anyway.
