Bibliotheca: The Bible, in four modern volumes

All four Bibliotheca volumes

The Biblical Literature designed & crafted for reading, separated into four elegant volumes, and free of all numbers, notes, etc.

A Kickstarter project by book designer Adam Lewis Greene.

Today, our contemporary bibles are ubiquitously dense, numerical and encyclopedic in format; very different from how we experience other classic & foundational literature, and completely foreign to how the original authors conceived of their work.

Original typeface, designed and “set apart” exclusively for Bibliotheca.

Page proportion and text block based on the dimensions of the Ark of the Covenant as specified in Exodus.

By separating the text into several volumes, and by applying classic & elegant typography, Bibliotheca is meant to provide a fresh alternative to the reader who wants to enjoy the biblical library anew, as great literary art.
