The Hendrickson Large Print is a budget model (printed in China) Bible that has many features not found in premium Bibles. Pros 9/10-point font that’s clear and readable Headings in the text in bold type End-of-verse references Imitation leather looks and feels great Sewn binding lays flat Cons Paper lining makes binding slightly stiff Basic concordance No index to maps Here are the major features Presentation page Epistle Dedicatory Large print – 10-point font End-of-verse references Red-letter Imitation leather Cover stitched all around Sewn binding One ribbon marker Silver gilting 8 full-color maps Special Features section 9.25 x 6.25 x 1 List Price = $29.95 Amazon Price = $22.76 Christianbook Price = $17.99 Meta review = 4/5 Binding The cover is imitation leather. It is two-tone blue and grey and has stitching around the edges. It looks very nice and it feels good to the touch. The most impressive feature is the sewn binding. A sewn binding is a ‘must-have’ in my opinion and I was not expecting a sewn binding at this price-point. The map section has sewn stitching (called overcasting). Text The text is a 9-point font with 10-point leading. It’s a very readable modern font. It is not self-pronouncing. It does have italics for words supplied by the translators. The red-letter is actually red. It’s not too bold. It’s just as readable as the black-letter text....Read More
Coming in September, 2012, is Cambridge’s fine Clarion edition in New American Standard. The NASB Clarion will be available in black goatskin, black calfsplit, or brown calfskin. Here’s more information from Baker Publishing: A Cambridge Clarion Reference Bible presents the text in a single column with the cross-references in the outer margin, giving the page a very well laid out appearance. The font size is a little under 9 point with generous line spacing. It is typeset in Lexicon No. 1, a modern digital font which has many of the characteristics usually associated with traditional Bible typefaces–in particular, a degree of readability more usually associated with much larger type. The Clarion edition is the only NASB personal size reference Bible with a single-column paragraph format. The Bible has 15 new color maps and a concordance and there are two ribbon place markers. This is a Bible of the very highest quality, printed on India paper with art-gilt edges, Smyth-sewn for flexibility and endurance, and bound in black goatskin leather, brown calfskin leather, or black calf split...Read More
Releasing January 2013, the King James Edition Pitt Minion will be available in Black Imitation, Brown Calf Split, and Black or Brown Goatskin. Here’s the information from Baker Publishing: A combination of skilled design and the use of a remarkably compact typeface lead to acclaim for the Pitt Minion format in achieving the difficult feat of being both easy to carry and easy to read. The first Pitt Minions were only available in the King James Version but in recent years Cambridge has developed the original concept by creating new Pitt Minion Bibles in a range of modern translations. These are produced using a special digital font which has similar characteristics of compactness and readability to the original typeface. Now, the KJV Pitt Minion Edition has been freshly typeset using this modern font and current layout, which presents the text in paragraph format. The Bible text is supported by a Reader’s Companion (a cross between a concordance and a dictionary) and 15 newly designed color...Read More
