Where can you find work from the Vispo Bible (as of February 3, 2021)

i'm going to use this blog entry to provide links to the Vispo Bible's publications for all who have asked or who might want to know:


THE VISPO BIBLE is a life's work to translate every chapter, every book, every verse of the Bible into visual poetry. I began the project in 2015, and as of May 1, 2020, i have completed 300 pages: Old Testament: Genesis, Exodus, Levitucus, Numbers, Ruth, Esther, Deuteronomy,
New Testament Acts 1-8 so far/ currently in progress,Matthew,Mark,Romans, John I, II, III, Jude, Revelation.

In 2018, I received funding from the Ontario Arts Council based on a recommendation from Coach House Books for the Vispo Bible.
