BooksAn acclaimed artist and former fundamentalist preacher, Barry Moser began the Pennyroyal Caxton Bible, as it's known, about twelve years ago. He has received praise for his illustrated versions of books such as Moby Dick and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, but he approached this undertaking more carefully, with an "awe-striking" sense of reverence.
The engravings themselves, almost two hundred and fifty scattered throughout both testaments, aren't the light and airy depictions that one might expect of biblical imagery. White-on-black, dark and frequently bleak, Moser's collection of images lends an ominous power to much of the book's resonance text.
