Nearly thirteen years ago, calligrapher Donald Jackson began an epic project to create a hand-written Bible, commissioned by St. John’s University in Minnesota. Now, with a final "Amen," the Bible has been completed. Michael Inbar of Today.com has the story. (video)
From the article:
The Bible, to be bound in seven volumes, contains 1,150 pages, weighs 165 pounds and measures two-feet tall by three-feet wide when opened. And every single one of its nearly 775,000 words was painstakingly written by hand by a team of scribes using 130-year-old Chinese ink dispensed through writing quills made of goose, turkey and swan feathers.
The article includes an interview of Jackson by the Today Show's Matt Lauer.
