More Info on Cambridge ESV Editions

I just received a copy of the new Cambridge UK catalogue for 2008 -- which includes a nice big quote from yours truly on page 11 concerning the goatskin NASB wide margin. Also of interest: page 9 is devoted to the upcoming editions of the ESV. No photos, but here is the copy:

Two new classics In 2008, Cambridge will introduce the ESV to its list of Bibles. This is the latest in a range of Bible versions presented in two classic Cambridge formats. ESV Pitt Minion Reference Edition The Pitt Minion is characterized by an elegant, slimline form containing text printed in a compact, yet readable font. The NASB, NKJV and NIV have recently come out in this format, and the ESV Pitt Minion Reference Edition will have the same text design and specifications when it is published in Autumn 2008. ESV Wide-Margin Reference Edition Wide-margin Bibles are another Cambridge specialty. The margins provide plenty of space for personal notes, and the Bibles are printed on paper that stands up well to note-taking. The ESV Wide-Margin Reference Edition will be published at the end of 2008 and be comparable to the NASB and NKJV Wide-Margin Reference Editions. Each of these new wide-margin editions is an enlargement of the Pitt Minion edition, so has exactly the same layout and pagination, with the bonus of a more extensive concordance.

Needless to say, I'm looking forward to these releases and will review them as soon as I can get my hands on them. In the meantime, these descriptions confirm that the ESV Pitt Minion will share the same specs as the other translations already published -- so if you like those, you should like the ESV editions, too.
