The strangeness and mystery of the Voynich Manuscript has inspired musicians and novelists.  Not surprisingly, the work has also proved a springboard for visual artists, but the remarkable thing about the photographs by Miljohn Ruperto and Ulrik Heltoft now at Thomas Solomon is how they don't just feed off the manuscript's secrets and complications but build upon them to generate something odd, fantastic and mysterious in its own right. The Voynich Manuscript, in the collection of the Beinecke Library at Yale, dates from the 15th or 16th century.

Instead of running two pictures of author W.G. Sebald and three pictures of men with green tea, how about one picture of the labradoodle ("'Doodles' Lead Pack of New Dog Breeds," Oct. 24), a creature most people have never seen? MARY MILLER Los Angeles

It was a rare day of gray skies at Venice Beach. Beside the Boardwalk, a man was giving a virtuoso performance of "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" on wine glasses filled with varying amounts of water. As his moistened hands slid over the rims, he cast an anxious glance upward; even a light drizzle would destroy his fine-tuning. Skateboarders whizzed up a ramp toward the lowering clouds. Roller skaters serpented down a slalom course.

Oops! I almost missed it. I am referring to Patt Morrison's May 30 column. I do like many of the things you are doing with redesigning the paper, but don't overdo it by eliminating pictures of the columnists. We longtime readers have become accustomed to responding to pictures of our favorite columnists and I, for one, miss them. Keep it interesting for the people who live here. Put the pictures back. Please! Bob Brach Desert Hot Springs
