The Raynor Memorial Libraries stop during the Doors Open Milwaukee event proved to be a unique stop of the day.
“An exhibit featuring the just completed Saint John’s Bible will be available in the main lobby of the library. Created by a team of five scribes and six artists, the 13 year project merged ancient techniques of calligraphy and illumination with an ecumenical Christian approach to the Bible. It is the first monumental, handwritten and illuminated Bible prepared since the invention of moveable type. This Heritage edition is a full-scale, fine art reproduction of the original vellum manuscript.” – Doors Open Milwaukee Website
