1382 Wycliffe Bible (facsimile re-typeset)

Typeset version of the original text

 

1455 Gutenberg Bible (full color photo facsimile)

Only a few are in existence. Someone carefully photographed each page of one of those copies. I purchased a PDF of all those page photos, then I printed them all at Staples. Finally, I had them leather bound as a two volume set (just like the original) at Grimm Book Bindery. Example pages :
