    Not an immediate solution, but maybe a source of ideas: tex.stackexchange.com/a/24719/5001 (@Raphink's attempt to recreate the first page of a 1564 Geneva Bible...)

    If the answer at tex.stackexchange.com/q/141924/7883 does not satisfy you, perhaps you should offer a bounty there for better answers. If you’re giving up on TeX as software with which to produce this layout, perhaps you should move this question to graphicdesign.stackexchange.com or make inquiries at typophile.com.
