Hyde & Rugg:

We solve hard problems


Ricardus Manuscript images

The manuscript was originally produced as a single large page. For clarity, the image below is a composite of scans of each individual image and accompanying text.

The scans are numbered 1 (top left drawing) to 8 (bottom right image).

The images and text were produced by hand, in ink on paper.

I have deliberately not produced a machine-readable version of the text; this is a feature, not a bug. The text is similar to Voynichese, but is not the same.
