HRC King James Bible exhibit: Eirc Gill

I’ve been to the Harry Ransom Center’s exhibition, The King James Bible: Its History and Influence half a dozen times already but I keep going back. Sadly, it closes at the end of the month.

John 1:1-5 from The Four Gospels, designed by The Golden Cockerel Press with engravings by Eric Gill, 1931.

Initial proof by Eric Gill from John 8:6-7, “But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not. So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.”

  1. I love the second image here, the way he leans on the “A” to write and the simplicity of forms.

What say you?
