Bible Buying Guide, in conjunction with Zondervan and Thomas Nelson Publishers, is hosting a Thinline Comfort Print Bible Giveaway. (This giveaway has ended)
Zondervan and Thomas Nelson are very proud of their new Comfort Print texts (and rightly so). Each translation has its own font carefully designed by 2K/Denmark to reflect the style and history of the translation. To help spread the word about these beautifully designed fonts they have graciously offered to give a total of 6 Bibles away to Bible Buying Guide readers. (sorry only our readers with a US address are eligible).
To learn more about the design and purpose of these fonts visit ComfortPrintBibles.com, read Randy’s interview with Doug Lockhart, or check out his interview with 2K/Denmark to find out more about the designers.
Winners will have 6 different Bibles to choose from.
- KJV Thinline Bible Standard Print in Black Leathersoft

- NKJV Thinline Bible Standard Print in Black Leathersoft
- NKJV Thinline Bible Standard Print in Burgundy Leathersoft

Since we do not have the Bibles in-house the following photos of the exteriors of the Bibles are taken from the publishers’ websites and the photos of the text are from other Bibles using the same fonts.
KJV’s font had to be traditional. The inspiration for the design came from a Latin New Testament, typeset with a Scottish Roman typeface and published by Thomas Nelson in 1844.

Using the letter-forms found in a mid-1800s Thomas Nelson Bible as a starting point, the Comfort Print Typeface blends tradition with the best advances in modern typography.

Rather than going for the traditional the NIV typeface was designed to be authoritative, accessible, and global.
