The most elaborate bestseller reprint in recent history has got to be Taschen'sLuther Bible of 1534: Complete Facsimile Edition. The owner of the original copy wanted it to be a precious, unique object, so the 117 woodcuts were illustrated in brilliant colours by a single hand. In a helpful booklet included with the two hardbound volumes, Stephan Fuessel gives a quick history in English of Martin Luther and how he rendered the Bible in vivid, poetical German. ("We do not have to ask about the literal Latin", wrote Luther, "as these asses do. ") He also explains what each of the bold blue, green, red and gold illustrated woodcuts mean. Often Luther had an angry political message: in Revelations, the most wildly illustrated book, the Whore of Babylon is not only riding a terrifying, reptilian seven-headed beast, but wearing the Pope's crown, the battle of Gog and Magog and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse features Turks. Imagine the impact these exquisite visions of flaming miracles must have had on people in 1534. Or behold these books and feel it for yourself. --Tim Appelo, Amazon. com
