Limited Edition of 6,000Our millennium issue: â€œthe greatest story ever told' retold in images by modern-day artists and photographers. The intent was to make an issue that was visually provocative but not blasphemous or gratuitously shocking. We worked closely with Dr. Royal Rhodes, professor of religion at Kenyon College, who helped us excerpt passages from the King James Bible. Mario Testino photographed Adam and Eve (dressed in Martine Sitbon and poised to prune with Hermes hedge clippers); Wolfgang Tillmans contributed the Crucifixion; Andreas Gurskyâ€™s image of a rave became the Exodus; Mary Ellen Mark envisioned a modern day Mary and Joseph; and Steven Meisel imagined the Apocalypse in a series of eerily foreboding fashion images inspired by the painter Odd Nerdrum. As if tackling the Old and New Testaments wasnâ€™t already enough, Visionaire collaborated with industrial designer Philippe Starck to create special packaging for the issue. His concept? A molded-plastic â€œenergy sphere.' The case was a major undertaking as well as a technical challenge, and there were times when it looked like it would take a miracle to get it produced. But several months after conception, The Bible appeared in all of its glory. Sealed Copy #1123. Bookseller Inventory # 121818
