  • About the Edition

    The time has come to tell the entire story of the creation of The Saint John"s Bible, written and illustrated entirely by hand. This completely updated and expanded edition of Illuminating the Word devotes a separate chapter to each of the Bible"s seven volumes. Readers get a behind-the-scenes tour of the creation of each volume, with a fascinating window into the activities, challenges, and struggles at Donald Jackson"s Scriptorium in Wales. We can practically watch, through the eyes of every artist and calligrapher who participated in the project, the Bible"s stunning illuminations move from conception to completion. This edition also includes a completely new chapter on the scripts used in The Saint John"s Bible that will fascinate calligraphers and lovers of the art. Still another new chapter details the production of the Heritage Edition, a high-quality, fine-art facsimile of the original that makes The Saint John"s Bible available to a wider audience than the singular manuscript.--Publisher website.
