Re: folio edition bible



    Arion Press in San Francisco kept  traditional bookprinting techniques,
added computer tech to create a very special Bible.  They laid out the text
on a mac. They fed the file through a vintage mac to communicate with a
Monotype casting machine.  The lead type was assembled into galleys, inked
and pressed on cotton folio paper.  The pages were illuminated by hand.
Folded, gathered, sewn and bound.  400 copies by hand.  One volume or two,
cloth or leather binding. $7250 to $11,000 ... depending upon
embellishments.
