The Making of the St John's Bible

Ludlow Palmers

Thursday 19 September at 3:30pm

Ludlow Methodist Church

Speaker: Donald Jackson

An artist calligrapher's dream project to ignite the spiritual imagination. One of the world's leading calligraphers, from 1998 till its completion in May 2011, Donald Jackson was the Artistic Director and principal illuminator of The Saint John's Bible. From his scriptorium in Wales, he oversaw scribes, artists and craftsmen who worked with him on the handwriting and illumination of this seven-volume, 1,150-page book. His studio/workshop remains the only calligraphy atelier in the United Kingdom where artist calligraphers are still regularly employed, maintaining the highest traditions of this ancient art in a modern context.
