Coming Soon – Cambridge KJV Turquoise Reference Edition

Cambridge Turquoise – image from Cambridge

A Bible that I’ve been looking forward to from Cambridge is the KJV Turquoise Reference Edition. The Turquoise was originally published in the 1920’s and has been a popular reference edition among those who prefer large print. It’s a verse-by-verse double column setting with center column references. The Turquoise is a great choice for preachers or anyone preferring a large print KJV.

The new edition will have the words of Christ while on earth in red letter. It includes a sewn binding with either goatskin or calf-split leather, India paper (I suspect it will be the same paper as the current Pitt Minion and Clarion line), new concordance, maps, Translator’s to the Reader, 2 ribbons, and more.

Release Date

There’s no official release date yet. The Turquoise is currently in production. They’ve produced the text-blocks and they’re currently at the binding stage. We should expect to see them published within a few months, before the end of 2017.
