The Saint John’s Bible Project
with Cynthia Stiles
Most of us in this group are familiar with Donald Jackson and his role in the creation of the Saint John’s Bible. Overall and specifically the work itself is incredible. We as calligraphers can truly appreciate what it took to achieve what he did, the work that went into it and what it took to create this in today’s contemporary world. Or do we?
I’m looking at this thinking Donald Jackson is a true master in the field of calligraphy and it’s arts but what did it take for him to achieve what he did with the Saint John’s Bible? How did he do that?!!! That could take hours (days even) so we will focus on two or three of his key artistic pieces.
