Celebrating print

Good idea which is being used for the UK 2-pound coin by Design Studio in London. It's to celebrate 400 years since the printed King James Bible, and to celebrate/commemorate print itself by embossing the opening words of the Bible in reverse (as though set text) and indenting them alongside (as though printed). Very nice. (It's funny how God and money go together – eg, "In God We Trust" on US currency – but that's another story. This is a celebration of print, not a joining of religion and the root of all evil!)
