mmm, outsider art generally doesn't group like that. There's a consistency to the Voynich that looks like consistent language and the ramblings of the madman generally don't.

I think it was someone good at forgery and cryptography coming up with something to sell a rich rube. Who the forger and who the purchaser was I have no idea. There are several choices.
