PBS (I think) did a wonderful show on this book while it was still in production. (For those who don't know, this was a Bible that has been hand lettered, and richly illuminated, in the same way that Bibles were done before that Gutenberg fellow messed everything up.

Went to the exhibition in Winnipeg (still on until June 8). What an amazing bit of work! Was neat to see the process by which it happened as well.

And you can have your own copy for $115,0000, which I know is pocket change for you type designers.
