The Voynich manuscript: the Blue Cube

It is known as "the blue cube"in the Voynich manuscript. However, two of the sides of the object seem to be colored in now faded yellow.


This makes the object look like a book with blue cover and gold-leaf edges.


There seem to be couple of round details along one of the edges that makes the object look like a Cookie Monster lunch box :) It is not clear if those are intentional or just coincidental.

If we imagine for a moment "the blue cube" to be a book these dotted details could represent some kind of book clasps.

Zoom-in of the possible book clasp detail.



There are other interpretations of the cube drawing - most often it is perceived as a mineral.
