The Materials of the Saint Johns Bible with Reggie Ezell
Presented by the Nashville Calligraphers Guild
The greatest work of art in western calligraphy and illumination in the last 500 years is the Saint Johns Bible. It is created with materials that reach back millennia: calfskin vellum, quills, stick inks, dry pigments, gilding, and more. The designs, though grounded in tradition, always have a contemporary flair. The intention of this extended studies course is to be immersed in these materials and techniques in order to produce a finished work, broadside or book, integrating these materials and designs.
