The Holy Bible

 

If one looks back through the history of printing, many of the most lavish and ambitious projects have been Bibles in which the world’s greatest typographers, printers, and illustrators have allied to create a work of art worthy of a sacred text. Despite this rich tradition, the twentieth century has witnessed no major Bible in which both the New and Old Testaments were illustrated by a single artist. As we neared the end of the millennium, one of the world’s greatest living illustrators and bookmen focused his efforts on the book which has made the greatest impact on Western civilization.

Barry Moser put himself through college as a Methodist preacher. While his calling to the ministry did not last, he retained a love and interest in the Bible. Moser’s 4 year labor of love has culminated in his magnum opus, the Pennyroyal Caxton Bible, the first Bible fully illustrated by one individual since Gustave Doré’s La Sainte Bible of 1865.
