New bible

My new ESV1 from R L Allan & Son finally arrived today...

It is beautifully bound and looks to be considerably more durable than the (considerably cheaper) TruTone cover on my current main bible (which has worn thin on the spine).

(The box it's sitting on is a box of 100 Gideons schools testaments - which seemed like the most appropriate free surface)

Those are wonderful pictures, and thanks for sharing with the rest of us. The three ribbons make for a much easier way to keep track of daily Bible reading. How legible is the type?

The type is quite legible - well spaced and clear. There doesn’t appear to be a page giving typeface/size information, but it looks roughly the size of Times Roman in the 8-9pt range.

Hi Geoff,

Thank you for sharing. What sre the dimensions of the Bible, including thickness (with cover, in centimeters, please).

Thank you Geoff. To my taste that is the PERFECT size!
