This marvelous edition of the Bible was designed by Bruce Rogers. Wikipedia has a nice entry for Rogers, here is their summary: "Bruce Rogers (1870 Ã¢â?¬â?? 1957) was an American typographer and type designer, acclaimed by some as among the greatest book designers of the twentieth century. Rogers was known for his "classical" style of design, rejecting modernism, never using asymmetrical arrangements, rarely using sans serif type faces, favoring stolid roman faces such as Caslon and his own Centaur. His books now fetch high sums at auction."This Bible is limited to 975 copies. Double columned. Beautiful headpieces.
