One type of KJV that doesn’t have a lot of high quality options is a text-only edition in large print. The LCBP 215 series is in a league of its own.

The print in the Cambridge edition is darker, but the LCBP looks sharper. The Cambridge paper is made to be thin, while the LCBP is...Read More
Local Church Bible Publishers and Bearing Precious Seed are publishers that produce the KJV at cost. Both have similar build structure – calfskin and cowhide covers that are edge-lined. This is a quick look at two of the most popular Bibles from both publishers: the LCBP 180 and the BPS Hand Size. Both have 10-point fonts and are text only editions with a concordance.
