Exhibit: Manifold Greatness The best-selling book of all time is said to be the Bible. The Folger Museum´s exhibit on The King James Bible seeks to put that claim in context with a history of the how the King James Bible in particular came to exist, and its cultural penetration. The astronauts on Apollo 8, for instance, read King James on Christmas Eve in 1968, while orbiting the moon, while Gonzo comic R. Crumb copied its verse word-for-word for his illustration of Genesis. To Jan. 16 at the Folger Museum, 201 East Capitol St. SE. Phone: 202/544-4600. Web: http://www.folger.edu/
