Portions of Benedictines’ hand-created Saint John’s Bible on display in Tacoma

I saw this picture in the Seattle Times website and kept gawking at it for some time … Even though it is reasonable a simple style , well calligraphed Italics , looks great …

Scribes working on The Saint John’s Bible created their own goose-feather quills. Quills are more supple than metal pens and allow the ink to flow freely, producing fine hairlines at the end of strokes.
