Schuyler Personal Size Canterbury KJV Bible Review

The regular size Canterbury was Schuyler’s first originally designed KJV and it was one of thier most popular Bibles. It’s similar to their Quentel series but adds ornamental drop-caps and retains the verse-by-verse setting- creating a unique blend of old and new. Schuyler has now produced the Canterbury in personal size, which is a reduced version of the regular size Canterbury with a couple of differences: the Personal Size Canterbury has 28gsm Indopaque paper instead of 36gsm, it has 2 ribbons instead of 3, it has red letter for the words of Christ, the grain of the leather isn’t...

Schuyler ESV Personal Size Quentel Bible in Purple Calfskin – Review

Schuyler’s ESV Personal Size Quentel (named for Peter Quentel) is based their regular size Quentel. This edition is reduced in size (hence the ‘personal size’) and has the same pagination. It also has thinner paper, no concordance (to help reduce the thickness and avoid a concordance with a font that’s too small to read), and has added pages for notes. It’s available in goatskin and calfskin. I’m reviewing the purple calfskin edition. It was made in the Netherlands by Jongbloed and typeset by 2K/Denmark. The text is the 2016 edition of the ESV. This Bible was purchased for review. ...

Personal Size Canterbury Sneak Peek

Schuyler’s personal size edition of the KJV Canterbury is in the editing stage and they hope to have it available in spring 2018. This edition will be red letter. They’ve retained the red drop caps. This edition will have thinner paper than the regular edition and will not include a concordance. It will include maps. The glossary will depend on how small the font becomes when they shrink it. I suspect it will be too small to be useful. Time will tell. You can read our review of the regular Canterbury in calfskin here. You can purchase a Canterbury...

Schuyler Canterbury KJV Bible Review

Schuyler Bible’s first KJV was their own production of the TBS Westminster. The Canterbury is Schuyler’s first originally designed King James Version. It follows a similar pattern of their Quentel series but has a few design features that are unique in modern Bible publishing, creating a unique blend of old and new. The design of the Canterbury makes me think of modern retro cars. Cars like the Mustang and Challenger are patterned after the classic designs but they have modern refinements. The Canterbury is patterned after the KJV’s of old, but with modern fonts and paper, making it feel...
