St. John's Bible

Today, I went with my mum to the Phoenix Art Museum to see the Illuminated Manuscripts exhibit.

If you live near Phoenix, or if this exhibit is coming to you soon, go go GO!! It was an amazing experience. Not only did they showcase ancient Christian and Jewish texts, but the featured St. John's Bible is the first handwritten and illustrated Bible in hundreds of years. It does a great job of connecting the ancient to the modern.

Hey eric, thanks for visiting my blog. I thought I'd return the favour! Beautiful blog. And awesome art! Stunning! Too bad the show likely won't be coming as far North as Canada?!

Saw it in London - it sounds like part of the Sacred exhibition is near you!
