I hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas, full of peace and good will. Brian, a frequent reader of the Bible Design and Binding Blog, sent me a photo of his stack of Bibles, including a very interesting antique! From bottom to top, here's a list of what's on display:
ESV Deluxe Heirloom Calfskin NASB Single Column Black Letter Text in Calfskin ESV Allan's Highland Goatskin with Art Gilt Edges KJV Black Letter Text, Wide Margin, Art Gilt Edges, Calfskin KJV Compact, Art Gilt Edges, Calfskin NKJV Nelson Signature in Calfskin ASV in Goatskin, Black Letter Text, Thumb-Indexed, Art Gilt Edges, Published by Thomas Nelson and Sons
Thanks, Brian, for sharing the photo. I wonder how the cover of that ASV in goatskin has held up over the years? To everyone in the Bible Design & Binding Blog community, I want to wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I've enjoyed our conversations and look forward to many more in the year to come!
