Evangelical Bible does say that the blue and brown will be limited. Order quick! It’s good to see Cambridge dressed in something besides black or brown. They could once again compete for king of the hill if they would just continue this trend and introduce either a Concord or Cameo version of the NASB/ESV/NIV/NKJV. The Concord is a wonderful Bible to read, and it’s format would be fantastic to template. It seams that outside of the KJV, all of their Bibles are extremes. The Pitt Minion is micro small, The wide margins are huge, and the Clarion looks nice but has paper so thin it is a curling nightmare in the wintertime. Long ramble… Cambridge, do more of this! Try green!
Excellent idea Nathan! It would be amazing to have the Concord and Cameo available in multiple translations and in different colors. Those are some of my favorite styles and sizes, and I’m kind of partial to the dark fonts.
