The Gutenberg Bible

The Library of Congress has one of only three "perfect" copies of the Gutenberg Bible. Library patrons can view it only from behind thick glass, and only one person is allowed to actually touch the pages. But a project to take high-resolution digital images of each page is expected to give scholars a powerful new way to study the famous book.
