Apart from my love of these texts, the idea for this book grew from a desire to experiment with an idea for giving the 'appearance' of text printed in rich black on pages covered in gold leaf. Also, ever since first seeing delicious samples of printing by Fournier, I have been fascinated by the idea of large type disposed upon tiny pages. Each of these psalms begins at one end of the book and has its own cover design, titlepage and typographical style.
