David A. Carter, Engineering Extension

David Carter will share with the KSU Social Club his expertise as a docent for the Morse Department of Special Collections with a presentation on the St. John's Bible. The seven-volume Heritage Edition of The Saint John's Bible is a collection of works that celebrate living creative traditions. The St. John's Bible was a monumental modern undertaking. Donald Jackson and his team of scribes and artists have combined ancient calligraphic techniques with computer technology to create on calf-skin vellum the first hand-written and hand-illuminated bible commissioned in over 500 years. Please come enjoy a great meal and a wonderful discussion of an exhibit from our own KSU Library.
