Condensing books of the Bible into single, minimalist illustrations [15 pictures]


When not serving in his primary role as a Presbyterian pastor and liturgical studies Ph.D. student, Joseph Novak is a freelance graphic designer. Novak notes,

In an age of information overflow, sometimes we need to strip away the many words which obfuscate meaning and rely on simple symbolic shapes to introduce us to themes beyond the text.

To that end, Novak has reimagined most of the books of the Bible as pieces of minimalist art…

6 Job

He’s quick to clarify, “The Minimum Bible is not trying to replace the Bible. Rather, it serves as a sort of visual diving board back into the text.”

You can purchase prints of any of the 60 pieces in the series over at Minimum Bible. Here are some examples…
