Location: Library

The Pennyroyal Caxton Bible, Barry Moser's richly illustrated King James Version of the Bible, was displayed in the Israel Museum in conjunction with the Landscapes of the Bible exhibition. The 233 illustrations for The Pennyroyal Caxton Bible were engraved in Resingrave, a contemporary substitute for the dwindling supply of good quality wood engraving blocks.
