Digital Gutenberg bibles

Thursday 28 February 2002
In March 2000, ten researchers and technical experts from Keio University in Tokyo and from NTT spent two weeks in The British Library creating digital images of the two [Gutenberg] Bibles and the other related items.

You can see these remarkable books on the library’s website. Each bible has more than 1,200 pages, and every page is beautifully reproduced. At the highest resolution (1450 x 2048 pixels) the JPEG images are sumptuous. (Hint: click the image of the bible to see inside; click small images to see large ones).
