Là, c'est un bon commencement:


The Voynich "letters", or rather, what we count as letters,
are there, each as a small gif, each with its counterpart
in five systems:  Bennett, FSG (First Transcription Group),
Currier, Frogguy, EVA.

For more:


But you'll have to download a largish image  (about 100K).

The general principle is: EVA is Frogguy made pronounceable
(eg EVA qotedy is Frogguy 4oqpc89) and Frogguy is as close
a picture of what Voynich letters look like using the Roman
alphabet, digits, and punctuation marks (so that Frogguy
4oqpcdy, 8aii89, etc. look quite like what they are in
the manuscript).

Good question. Isn't that one of the lost pages?

Ça, c'est justement la bouteille à l'encre! (Pun
intended). Incredibly, unbelievably, shockingly: NO!
And since the thing is on vellum, you'd think a 
DNA analysis of the skins it was written on might
throw some light on its origin. Eh bien, là non
plus. Rien. Nib d'analyse. As if you'd discovered
a frozen pterodactyl and everybody just ignored it.

tout rouge).
