E-lluminated manuscript

Today’s Dallas Morning News has a feature on James G. Pepper, a Dallas administrative assistant who is inscribing an illuminated King James Bible in his spare time. The 23-year old project has seen him finish eight books, hundreds of decorated pages sporting cryptic hidden messages and pop-culture references in shaky calligraphy. Although touted as curiously low-tech and handmade, digital versions of sections of the book have been on sale for the iPad, Kindle etc. for years!
