One of 1500 sets. In celebration of the 500th anniversary of the Gutenberg Bible, an array of the world's best living typographers printed one or more separate specimens illustrative of their own solutions to the issues presented by printing the Bible. Among the contributors are Bruce Rogers, Hermann Zapf, Joseph Blumenthal, Jan Tschichold, Jack Stauffacher, Jan van Krimpen, Hans Schmoller, Grant Dahlstrom, et al. Although Maximilien Vox (a member of the editorial board) is included in the list of contributors, he missed the deadline for inclusion. The printing by the Sequoia Press is present in duplicate.
