    Default How many pages??

    I read on the ATT site somewhere that the book is a 123 page beautifully illustrated story bla bla bla

    there are not 123 pages!! even if you count the inside and outside covers as pages it is still (i think)= 122, could this be our "the one that is missing you did not see" clue?

    or maybe it's just the 2nd printed book with less pages???

    any thoughts?

    Good catch, Christian. This is just like the companion book's page count for the Voynich MS: "It contains the equivalent of 246 quarto pages. There are 212 pages with text and drawings, 33 pages contain text only." Of course, 212+33=245, not 146. And when you check out the Voynich, indeed there is one page missing -- p. 12, coincidentally the same page number that Stadther drew onto the picture the old YE NOMENCLATURE book (p. 38 of ATT).

    I still haven't the foggiest idea what to make of all this. Is "123" (our presumed missing page) a clue or number key? Is the page count for ATT somehow related to the page count for YE NOMENCLATURE OF FAERIES or the Voynich MS?

    Also, it has been pointed out elsewhere that the nomenclature book has a page missing. If you count the pages underthe shown page twelve, we should be viewing page 10 here, so one if the pages from the set {1,2; 3,4; 5,6; 7,8; 9,10} is missing here too.

    Just for giggles, my bossed past by my facility as I was counting pages and he ask what I was doing. I told him I was counting pages because I think one's missing, he said that if one was missing it wouldn't be in there and that technically if I was counting by twos (front, back) then I am missing 2 pages!!!

    So, the BIG QUESTION is, did you're boss think you were counting something work related??? MAYBE if he sees your dedication to "accuracy", you will get a raise! I'll send a letter of recommendation... with one page missing off course, or is that two???

    This was posted by ttadmin on the ATT site, guess it was a typo, damn!!

    "The web site has been updated to say the soft cover book is 118 pages. The hard cover book is also 118 pages.

    Both books have the same 116 pages of story. The hard cover has two page illustrations in the front and back that the soft cover does not have.

    We have sent the page counter to the Darklings."

    At least we know the 116 pages of story is the key.

    i apologize to those who may have joined me in counting the pages for no apparent reason..
