“Illuminating the Word: The Saint John’s Bible” is centered around a hand-written Bible. The Bible completed in 2011 is some 1,150 pages, measures 2 ft. wide by 16 in. tall, is divided into seven volumes and took 15 years and 23 professional artists and scribes to complete.

The Knights of Columbus Museum is one of the Elm City’s (New Haven, CT) quiet gems, ideal for Catholics, but appreciated by others for its art and history. The Museum exhibit, “Illuminating the Word”, chronicles the work involved in the fifteen years creating the Saint John’s Bible.

The exhibit uses three rooms to show the history (approximately 5,000 square feet), along with an outer wall showing those who participated in the writing, calligraphers, artists and illuminators that made possible the first hand written Bible in 500 years.

Using a range of visual services not normally found in one place, such as:

  • Regular and backlit dye-sub printed fabric banners
  • Backlit illuminated acrylic panels
  • Box framed photographic panels
  • Custom hand painted frames with acrylic fronts for display cases
  • Cut vinyl lettering for titles
  • 3M pressure sensitive adhesive vinyl for full wall graphics
  • Dimensional mounted graphic panels to highlight the various people and events

Enhance a Colour played a vital part in making this display possible. All work was done in Enhance a Colour’s 35,000 sq. ft. manufacturing plant in Danbury, CT and installation was handled by Enhance a Colour installers.
