Uranium Codices Unmasked!
How the Lead Codices Were Actually Used
Here all the time you thought the lead codices were forged. In this ground-breaking study, Rad I. O'Aktive reveals that the lead codices were simply covers to protect the Uranium Codices. The etchings on the lead codices were caused by the long-term exposure of the lead to the Uranium Codices hidden within. Professor O'Aktive has carefully worked with a team of specialists to decode these Uranium Codices; Winged Bull Press is pleased to make his findings available to the world.

Eisenbrauns Partners with Winged Bull Press to Offer Same-Day Airmail Service
Posted April 1, 2017
Eisenbrauns announced today that it is partnering with Winged Bull Press to offer the publishing industry's first true same-day air mail service.
Dubbed IBEX AIR, after the Eisenbrauns mascot, the service offers an ideal that other book suppliers have only hinted at. "We've scooped Amazon at their own game," says Winged Bull President, James "Prop Spinner" Spinti, "They have these pipe dreams involving airships and drones, but the FAA won't let them do that. We're using real airplanes, and we can do this all day long." We joined the ribbon cutting at Warsaw Municipal Airport, just three miles north of Eisenbrauns' Winona Lake offices.The airport serves as a temporary base of operations until docks can be constructed at Winona Lake, which is visible just down the road from Eisenbrauns.
We caught up with Eisenbrauns pilot Andy Kerr as he was working through preflight checklists for the first delivery. "We're solving two of the major problems with airmail delivery," says Kerr, as he loads boxes into the Cessna 172's cargo door. "The problem with overnight service is that you get your books the next day. The problem with air mail is that so much of it happens on the ground. We're cutting out the middleman, and delivering direct."
The secret, it turns out, is not to land. "When you place your order, you pick out your house or apartment on Google maps. We take the GPS data, and deliver to your doorstep—or as close as we can—from 3,000 feet." For customers who are concerned about the packages straying off course in windy conditions, Kerr motions to a pallet of concrete blocks, and points out that additional ballast can be added to any order for a nominal fee. "They fall quite predictably with those attached."
With a $200 minimum delivery charge, the pricing is a surprisingly fair $5 per mile—an excellent deal when you take into account that the fee will likely cover your entire order. Whether it's 5 pounds or 500 pounds, if it will slide out the cargo door, it's all the same price. No one else offers same day delivery like this!
Eisenbrauns is delighted to partner with Winged Bull on this new venture. "This finally puts the 'wings' in Winged Bull!" exclaimed Spinti.
—and a lot of the bull, as well.

Spine flipper Service
We’ve all got it; it’s endemic to the field. And it doesn’t matter which side of the Atlantic you live on.
Look at those shelves, all those books neatly organized by topic. And a full quarter or more of them have titles going the wrong way on the spine! Oh sure, you can flip the book so the title reads the right way, but then the publisher is upside down. And the book is upside down when you go to use it.
It’s even worse when you lay the book sideways! At least when it is upright you know which end is the top of the book. When you lay it down, you’re more than likely going to open it the wrong way. It’s enough to drive a scholar to despair. Think of all the minutes of valuable research time you’ve wasted over the years.
What’s a person to do?
Winged Bull Press is proud to announce our all-new spine flipping service! You’ve carefully built your library over the years. Let us assist you in making it more esthetically pleasing and useful. For a small per book fee, we will remove the spine and reinstall it correctly.
Because of our patent-pending laser technology, there is minimal damage to the book—even paperbacks. Contact us for a quote, and be sure to specify whether you want the American or the European version. Volume discounts are available for complete libraries.
You’ve invested in your library; let Winged Bull Press help you get the maximum use out of it.
