Tabletop Gutenberg Press


Gutenberg Press: I had someone make a custom Gutenberg press for my presentations. It had to be (1) tabletop, (2) portable, and (3) a completely working printing press (at a fraction of the size). Jack the cat is helping me to print Genesis 1:1-5 -- "In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth ..." With my next exhibit and presentation, people will be able to print their own copies right from the printing press ... just as Gutenberg did way back in 1452, creating what is now known as the Gutenberg Bible.

World's Smallest Ten Commandments



Here is, from what I can tell, the smallest rendition of the Ten Commandments. It is yet another great microphotograph from John Benjamin Dancer in the 1800's. The label that you see on the right-hand side of the slide is actually the merchant (Stanley Optician at London Bridge). The notation on the left-hand label, J.B.D., is the initials for Dancer.

I'm not 100% certain that this still *remains* the smallest 10 commandments in the world today. But I do know that it was the Lord's Prayer that was most often used as a reference standard for miniaturization.

In any case, it is certainly a beautiful illuminated example ... especially for being so minute!

I had come across the world's *largest* ten commandments, so it reminded me that I had the world's smallest in my Wonders of the Bible collection.

The upcoming September 2019 podcast lecture will be on the world's smallest handwriting, so stay tuned.

God Bless You ... Today and Every Day.
