>From the website: Illuminating the Word: The Saint John's Bible exhibition presents what has been called "the most significant handwritten and illuminated Bible" commissioned since the advent of the printing press. The Saint John’s Bible, a richly ornamented masterwork hand-illustrated with gold leaf on oversized vellum, is an unprecedented undertaking in contemporary book arts and a major cultural and interfaith endeavor.
Gwen and I went to see it last week, while we were on vacation near Tyler. It is absolutely beautiful!! It hasn't been bound yet, the loose pages are all in glass-front display cases. It takes up all three galleries of the Tyler Museum of Art. Gwen was so entranced by it that the guard had to ask her to please quit touching the glass. :-) Her hand was just drawn to it!
Seriously, if you have a chance to go see it, do it! This is as close as it will ever be to Houston. This is a chance of a lifetime!
