Donald Jackson

Artistic Director and Illuminator, The Saint John’s Bible


One of the world’s leading calligraphers, from 1998 till its completion in May 2011 Donald Jackson was the Artistic Director and principal illuminator of The Saint John’s Bible. From his scriptorium in Wales, he oversaw scribes, artists and craftsmen who worked with him on the handwriting and illumination of this seven-volume, 1,150-page book. His studio/workshop remains the only calligraphy atelier in the United Kingdom where artist calligraphers are still regularly employed, maintaining the highest traditions of this ancient art in a modern context.
Jackson is an elected Fellow and past Chairman of the prestigious Society of Scribes and Illuminators, and in 1997, Master of 600-year-old Guild of Scriveners of the city of London. His personally innovative work and inspirational teaching have led to his being widely acknowledged as a seminal influence on the growth of Western calligraphy over the past 40 years
