The St. John’s Bible 2012 Desk Calendar captures the elegance of the first handwritten illuminated Bible commissioned by a Benedictine monastery in 500 years.
The creation of The Saint John's Bible has been a twelve-year process from its planning to its scheduled completion in 2011. Renowned calligrapher and illuminator Donald Jackson serves as artistic director and has collaborated with scribes, artists, and theologians to hand-create the stunning lettering and exquisite illustrations that fill the seven volumes and enliven and make new the Word.
The lovely hardcover St. John's Bible 2012 Desk Calendar features a different one of the bible's colorful and intricate illuminations on each weekly spread. The originals are painstakingly recreated, and the cover makes judicious and thoughtful use of embossing and foil accents. This beautiful calendar is one that will find a place on bookshelves long after the year is over.
Published by Liturgical Press, the St. John’s Bible 2012 Desk Calendar contains 112 pages in a 5 ¾” x 11 ¾” format. #9780814691885
