Active Service Gospel

During the First World War, Lifewords gave out 42 million copies of John’s Gospel to troops. We were commissioned to create a replica edition for the First World War centenary — in the spirit of the original, but with a few considered changes.

We painstakingly redrew artwork and researched the historical typefaces and papers to be as sensitive to the original version as possible. We inserted new content, including stories from soldiers who received the originals, and artwork based on key texts.
