Illuminating the Word

Full Product Description

The time has come to tell the entire story of the creation of The Saint John's Bible. This completely revised and updated 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 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.

Illuminating the Word by Christopher Calderhead was published by Liturgical Press in July 2012 and is our 45058th best seller. The ISBN for Illuminating the Word is 9780814691328.
