Roswell collaborates on the Saint John's Bible Heritage Edition

As a fine art reproduction of the original, this seven edition set is 1,150 pages with 160 illuminations. Completely handwritten and hand-bound using techniques of the past, the large scale piece is one of the most expensive Bibles ever created. A collaboration with calligrapher Donald Jackson and his team, the Bible was written on calfskin vellum with quills made from poultry feathers. In liu of traditional ink, liquid inks were made from egg yolks, fish glues, and gold and platinum leaf.
