On This Day...

A DAILY FACTOID OF OUR ART HISTORY

May 6

Living Scriptures was incorporated on this day (1974). Jared F. Brown and Seldon O. Young created the venture to produce animated stories from LDS scriptures and Church history. Using telemarking sales techniques but involving creatives that included Orson Scott Card, Lex de Azevedo, Kurt Bestor, and W. Cleon Skousen, the ever-morphing entity became a ubiquitous presence in the era's Mormon identity, particularly regarding children and their first experiences with the scriptures. https://www.livingscriptures.com/about-us/
