Willian Tyndale, the New Testament (1553)

aqui vão imagens do Novo Testamento de 1553 de William Tyndale. enfase nas capitulares ornamentais em estilo barroco, um livro que todo tipógrafo amante da escrita gótica gostaria de ter
William Tyndale was the first person to ever print the New Testament in the English language, and he was killed for doing so. These New Testaments were printed in the years following his execution. It is extremely unusual for printed Biblical material of the 1500’s to have wood cut illustrations, and these printings are filled with many large illustrations. They are the most artistically beautiful and elaborate antiquarian printed scripture that money can buy.
