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.
