Jim LePage - Word

My mom sent me this link, and I thought it was pretty cool - in a project called Word, Jim LePage is illustrating all of the books of the Bible.
"Basically, Word is a series where I create original designs for each book of the Bible. Before each design, I spend time researching the book, finding out the themes, historical context, weirdest stories, etc. I also scan through parts of the book looking for a passage or story that could translate into a cool design. Each design isn’t meant to completely represent the book, rather it is merely based on a passage from the book."
It's an ongoing project, and so far Jim has a little over 30 illustrations done. I look forward to seeing the full set some day.
