In 1998 Saint John's University commissioned calligrapher Donald Jackson to produce a fully illuminated luxury manuscript of the Bible. Jackson and his team of artists completed The Saint John's Bible in May 2011, ensuring that the exquisite art of illumination - richly represented in the Morgan's collections of medieval and Renaissance manuscripts - lives on into the twenty-first century. To document Jackson's monumental achievement, the University has published several facsimiles of the manuscript, including the lavish seven-volume Apostles Edition, issued in only twelve copies, which was presented to the Morgan as a very generous gift. To celebrate this donation the Morgan will display the volumes along with some of Jackson's preliminary studies.
