Virtuoso book designer and illustrator Barry Moser, many of whose masterpieces are already museum-housed modern classics, has devoted nearly five years to the greatest book project of all. Moser has hand-crafted, designed, and illustrated a magnificent Bible to be published in a special 400 copy limited edition. Viking Studio is proud to make this work of art and devotion available to a broader public in a trade edition of superb quality.The Pennyroyal Caxton edition of The Holy Bible is first and foremost intended to be read--with text lovingly designed and simply set in black type, subtly accented with red. But its revolutionary impact lies in its illustrations--haunting, sometimes dark but always luminous, described by Newsweek as "engravings with the brooding power of magical realism." Modeled on everyday people, they enrich each book (which salutes the original with its name printed in Hebrew or Greek) of both the Old and the New Testament. No connoisseur of great art or fine bookmaking, no religious or spiritual reader will want to be without this edition. It is a rich heirloom gift for holidays, holy days, and every day of the century to come.* 236 engravings printed as b&w line art* 2-sided satin ribbon marker* Gold foil stamped case* Parchtone jacket with gold foil stamping* Smyth sewn binding* Shrinkwrapped with peel-off price sticker… (more)
