The Pope - My Fake Diary
Tuesday, 15 May 2012
Israeli artist, Avner Moriah will present me with his Illuminated Book of Genesis during a special audience at the Vatican on May 16th.
Moriah's Illuminated Book of Genesis took two years to create, and will be included in the Vatican Library's distinguished holdings. The book, which is part of Moriah's project to illuminate the entire Bible, is replete with vibrant biblical images.
One of its many unique features is that it visually compares various biblical stories as a visual midrash. The exquisite Hebrew text was executed by calligrapher Izzy Pludwinski.
I wish I'd thought of having that done!
