The Cambridge Pitt Minion is a standard in small high quality Bibles and for good reason – it’s a full reference edition that’s easily carried while presenting a readable, yet small, typeface. The result, if you’re okay with small type, is a Bible that can easily become the only Bible you need. In this review I take a look at the English Standard Version (ESV) in black goatskin.

The Cambridge Transetto is an ultra-portable KJV with a unique design. It’s meant to be the ultimate balance between portability and readability. I reviewed this Bible when it released in 2011 but my wife claimed it because it’s so portable. At this year’s ICRS the Cambridge crew was kind enough to give me another one. Now that I have it in my hands again I wanted to write a new review. What is a Transetto? In this Bible the book-block is turned 90 degrees. What would normally be the left and right are the top and bottom. Due to...Read More
