"Job Enters the Wilderness" is an illustration in the Pennyroyal Caxton Bible, a limited edition Bible recently donated to MU's rare books collection. The relief engraving prints, a process similar to wood block printing, were designed by Barry Moser. According to the publisher, this is the first edition of the Bible since 1865 to include original illustrations by one artist for every book of the Old and New Testaments.
