Stimulus: The 15th Century Voynich Manuscript.

Issue 21 · July 2020

LPB Competition 2020 ·

The stimulus for our inaugural competition is the mindmap created by our editorial team on the notion of ‘antimatter’. The winning entries will be published in a special issue on October 7th, 2020.

The Thread

The Thread is LPB’‘s essayistic column, where writers are given the liberty to explore their ideas over a series of articles. Departing from the stimulus format of our monthly issues, ‘threads’ of articles in this column are woven together either thematically or stylistically.
