The God of Abraham

I wonder who wore the crown?

This is an interesting shape for a book.


The type within the shapes is nice and especially within the animal. The use of red type and larger point size is very graphic.

Most of the Christian images have visuals of Christ and his followers.

Do the visuals relate to the type design?

Different size pages within a book always intrigues me. I wonder if these were different copies that have been compiled by a single person. What is the story of this book?


Beauty in the simplicity of the layout and the embellishment.

Type going in all direction.


La Bibliothèque Nationale de France have a large website for their current exhibition: Livres de Parole ('Book of the Word') - Torah, Bible, Coran and the selection here were taken from the image bank thumbnail pages pertaining to Judaism, Christianity and Islam. There is a lot to see; the site is in French but visuals are visuals no matter the language.
