The everhelpful Lee Hadden writes :
\"The ever popular Smithsonian Magazine has two articles of interest to
librarians this month (Volume 31, no. 9, December 2000).
The first article is about the new manuscript copy of the Holy Bible
being inscribed with calligraphy at St. John\'s College, Collegeville,
Minnesota. This is the first hand inscribed copy of the Bible (in the
English language New Revised Standard Version instead of in Latin) to be
completed by the authentic methods and techniques from the Middle Ages in
the last five hundred years. The article by Per Ola et al, \"Inscribing the
Word,\" is on pages 79-83.
A second article on logophilia (a love of words) discusses a popular
a-word-a-day service and website that presents new words, their meanings
and etymology. \"Warning: Logophilia is Addictive\" is by Rudolph Chelminski,
and this article can be found on pages 66-74.\"
