The St. John's Bible

This morning on, Gordon references The Saint John’s Bible. This stunning project, the brainchild of calligrapher Donald Jackson, aims to handwrite the entire bible with illuminations and illustrations done in a beautiful hybrid of medieval and modern styles.

I’m just in awe. The artwork is wonderful, the lettering lovely, the scope of the project magnificent. Spend some time on the site, and be sure to see the prints in the online gift shop, where some of the best examples of the art are available in the Featured Prints section. Many thanks to St. John’s University for commissioning this project.
