View several volumes of The Saint John’s Bible and the BBC documentary of the making of the Bible.

The Saint John’s Bible is the first hand-written, hand-illuminated bible produced in over 500 years.  Commissioned by the monks of St. John’s Abbey in Minnesota, the Bible is a fusion of ancient artistic materials and techniques with modern technology envisioned by Donald Jackson, the official scribe and calligrapher for the British Crown.
