Craft Intimacy: "close interactions around shared problems and a sense of commonality"
(Cultivating Communities of Practice, Wenger, McDermott, & Snyder)
I wish you could see this Bible in person. Even if you aren't a Christian, the art is stunning. The scope is staggering. The materials mesmerizing. Gold, vellum, strokes of vibrant color. The wonder of 41 years of effort, design, and workmanship. The first project of its kind in five hundred years. Multiple Monks working together - and separately-to achieve this common goal: an illuminated Bible in English.

When collaborating with others, aim for craft intimacy. You'll strengthen your work and your resolve.
