In The Saint John's Bible, some of the world's top calligraphers, working in a tradition all but replaced by the printing press centuries ago, offer one of the most important sacred art achievements of our time. The Art of The Saint John's Bible: A Reader's Guide brings text and illumination together for reflection. This guide opens up the significance of elements in the illuminations, points out recurring visual motifs that connect the stories within and across the volumes, and offers insight into the thought processes and artistic vision behind the planning and execution of the images. This third volume of the series covers the final published volumes of The Saint John's Bible: Historical Books and Letters and Revelation. It offers an invitation to experience more deeply the illuminations that accompany some of the most influential texts in all the Scriptures
