Re: VMs: Tracing...?

How might tracing have been achieved in the 15th Century? Is the parchment of the VMS so thin as to make this possible simply by placing it over an existing document and (under a bright light) copying the lines? Might this have been the primary reason for preferring parchment to paper?

Many of the pages appear quite translucent: for example in f11r ( http://voynich.net/images/Full/z3724828.jpg ) you can see the drawing on f11v bleeding through rather clearly. -- Jim Gillogly 2 Afteryule S.R. 2003, 13:07, 5 Lamat 1 Kankin, Second Lord of Night
