There’s an interesting new Bible project on Kickstarter called The Bible Beautiful. Noticing how visually oriented our culture has become the founders of Alabaster, Bryan Chung and Brian Chung (yes, they have the same name) are designing a Bible for today. Wanting people to see God as the ultimate creator and artist they are creating a Bible that integrates imagery, typography and layout design within the biblical text. They are using photographic images, the majority of which were created specifically for this project after in-depth study of the scriptures. They are starting with the four gospels, each in it’s own book. Each gospel...Read More

I just received my pre-release review copy of Tyndale’s Inspire Bible: Large Print Edition. The first creative journaling Bible to be offered in large print it’s noticeably larger than the standard edition with larger text, larger illustrations, and more room for drawing. Some will probably think it’s a little large for carrying though. Other than the cover changing color (a little more blue than aqua) it seems to be the same Bible just bigger. We will have a full review, a various mediums in this Bible post, and maybe even a video review up before it’s September 8th release....Read More
I’m back with the second post in my Various Art Medium series. This time I’m working in the NLT Inspire Bible. The paper quality in this Bible is identical (or at least so close I can’t tell the difference) to the My Creative Bible so some of these results are like the ones in last week’s post. Colored Pencils work perfectly with no bleed through (as expected). My coloring is pretty basic but I’ve seen some absolutely beautiful pictures from this Bible done in pencil. I’m planning on experimenting and seeing if I can do some of the bright...Read More
