About the Art
Welcome to THE MINIMUM BIBLE, the home of the minimalist artwork of Joseph Novak. In an age of information overflow, sometimes we need to strip away the many words which obfuscate meaning and rely on simple symbolic shapes to introduce us to themes beyond the text. The art featured on this site is an attempt to portray themes and texts visually using a minimalist style.
Looking for a great and unique gift idea? Choose a print from the galleries and have it ordered directly from the site (choose "Buy Print" while looking at each print). We interface with FOTOMOTO who processes the art sales through PayPal. It's super easy.
For a limited time, head to the store and buy a limited edition, signed gallery print that will arrive in time for Christmas* in a handsome over-sized matte and backing board and tucked politely into a plastic sleeve. All available prints are on sale for a flat $25 + $5 shipping.
*if ordered by December 12.
If you'd like to utilize the art for your church bulletins, posters, or if you'd like to do your own printing for your home decor, pick up a heavily discounted digital set. Every set is $25 and includes ultra-high resolution image files. Get yours today.
