The St. John's Bible
Topic: Calligraphy
The St. John's Bible is a major artistic, cultural and spiritual endeavor. It is the first handwritten and illuminated Bible commissioned since the invention of the printing press. Significant in size and scope, The St. John's Bible will be bound in seven magnificent volumes comprising nearly 1,100 pages, each measuring approximately 16 by 24 inches. The translation is the New Revised Standard Version (NRSV) -- chosen for its theological rigor and wide acceptance by major Christian churches. The imagery is as diverse as Navajo basket-weaving patterns, microscopic views of viruses, and cosmological images from the Hubble Space telescope. Read more at Monastery Greetings

Nikon Coolpix L4
Topic: Photography
I bought a new little digital camera yesterday. A Nikon Coolpix L4. "Novices will appreciate its simple menu navigation and useful in-camera features such as cropping and repairing dark images. I was satisfied with both its picture quality and in-camera features, but the lack of a viewfinder and the inability to record video with sound hurt the camera's rating. Still, if you're a camera newbie or just need to return to the basics, the Nikon Coolpix L4 is a good choice...
... I was disappointed with the L4's lack of a viewfinder, although none of the L-line cameras have them. To make up for it, the camera has 2-inch LCD screen, unusually large in a camera this inexpensive."
