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 thought it'd be cool to have some variety instead of just two R1s. Figured it'd look good on TKL delete key, 40s escape key, or 660 cluster alongside the Hibi! I'm sure there are other ideas people will come up with.

Mono cause I want to use the novelties and the set would look too crowded when paired with sublegend Alphas.

What a fantastic first week!

First, we hit MOQ for the set and deskmats on day 1! All kits will be made, thank you all for your support.

Second, we have some new artisan collabs on the schedule! Anomaly Caps and From Scratch Caps have been added to the collab list.

Last and definitely not least, we have new full kit samples! Check out some phenomenal photos in the updates comment near the top of this thread!

I wish that the Novelty Mods had an extra R3 1.75u key so that I could use non-stepped R3 Control on my TMO but I think I still might get this because it's so unique and beautiful.

You mean people prefer to have latin alpha in order to use the caps? That's how majority works. Also, there are buyers who joined 2 alpha sets. So irl, the number of people who only join mono is significantly low

  Yeah, it's quite odd since sublegends ruin the aesthetic of the set, but there are apparently a lot of people who never learned "touch typing".

I'm happy to say that the Asero artisan has officially hit MOQ!
The Hibi artisan is just ten away now.
