Psalm 1. Press print from the Gutenberg Bible
Gutenberg-Bibel I/293, Psalms, Psalm 1–4: “Beatus vir qui non abiit in consilio impiorum”
This page of the Gutenberg Bible contains psalms extolling a life devoted to God and peace – also very topical in today’s (militant) climate. The print features floral ornaments on the lower edge of the page with a bird, dragonfly and the peacock as a symbol of beauty and immortality.
Our Bible prints are produced at the Gutenberg Museum in their original format on historical machines. Unlike Gutenberg we print the individual pages in three colours, with red and blue display type, headers and beginnings of lines and the outlines of the ornamentation, lending even our uncoloured pages a very decorative appearance.
