The twentieth-century Bibles in the Prothro Collection reflect Mrs. Prothro’s interest in the post-industrial revival of book production as an art form suitable for the modern age. As her collection demonstrates, many modern artists and typographers were inspired to create Bibles that embellished the central texts of the Judeo-Christian heritage with a mixture of modern innovations and time-tested tradition.
