I've picked up a new bible for every day use (thanks to my wife) ... what do you think? I think its a beauty.
ISBN 0191179515, Oxford University Press, Brevier Clarendon type, Calfskin.
It is a FAT 2 inches. The paper is relatively thick, and so adds to the bulk. I would have gotten this Allan (1.5 inches), but they aren't available yet. I prefer the stiffer calfskin over the softer leathers which make a book a little too "floppy" in the hand, in my opinion.
The text is pretty, and easy on the eyes (look toward the bottom where it is in focus):
My previous bible has become a little tattered, and I was concerned further daily use would expedite the deterioration. I know, I could have had it re-bound, but you lose some of your inside margin in that process, and I didn't think that acceptable.
The problem point. I've really enjoyed this bible for it's thinner profile, adequate margins, and font. Oxford no longer produces it, unfortunately.
