The Bibliotheca Four Volume Reading Bible Kickstarter

An exciting Kickstarter project called Bibliotheca is taking the Internet by storm with three times the funding goal reached with, at the time of this writing, three weeks to go. Who would have thought a four volume Bible project would attract such demand?

Bibliotheca founder Adam Lewis Greene is a typographer who has been brave enough to take a giant leap forward, pushing the boundaries of where the readable Bible movement has gone. His project is to publish an updated text of the old American Standard Version (ASV) using typefaces of his own design. I found his inspiration for his page proportions fascinating (watch the video). Greene clearly has thought deeply about the topic, and has done the hard work in the trenches to prepare himself for such a mammoth project.

Be sure to read the interview (Part 1 and Part 2) with Greene by the man who has led the charge in the Bible design movement from his Bible Design Blog, J. Mark Bertrand.

There are exciting possibilities for the future of Bible publishing, and Adam Lewis Greene clearly will be one of the visionaries who helps take us there.
