Illuminating the Word: The Saint John’s Bible by Donald Jackson

(The frontispiece to Matthew's Gospel - the first illumination made for The Saint John's Bible)
Special trip to Santa Fe, NM
November 7-8, 2011 

Join us for a trip to Santa Fe, NM, to visit an exhibit of the original Saint John’s Bible and attend a presentation by Donald Jackson, Senior Scribe and Illuminator to Queen Elizabeth’s Crown Office and Artistic Director of The Saint John’s Bible. He will share the story of his creative processes - design, interpretation and inspiration - in the making of The Saint John’s Bible. After 13 years’ work on seven monumental volumes, Jackson will talk about what that journey has meant to him as an artist and as a man. Lensic Theatre, Santa Fe, NM.

After the talk there is a special private reception at the New Mexico History Museum with Donald Jackson and viewing of this work of art. The exhibit will be one of the last times the pages of this masterpiece can be viewed before they are bound into book form and returned to the Saint John’s Abbey.

We drive in a minibus from Denver on Monday morning (8 a.m.) and return to Denver on Tuesday around 6 p.m. - space is limited (only three seats left)
