Unboxing an Allan's ESV1 r

Tom Burk sent along some unboxing photos of his new Allan's ESV1 r -- a limited edition in black highland goatskin with three red ribbons. Word is there are only fifty of these in existence, so if you like what you see, you might want to visit Allan's right away. Here's what Tom had to say:

Many feel there is no better Bible publisher today than R.L. Allan. It was no surprise that this Bible did not disappoint that sentiment. My Bible arrived carefully packed and marked as "Priority Mail" with "Royal Mail" postage from the UK  It is amazing how you can feel the quality of these Bibles after holding one for only a few minutes. Everything about this Bible instantly said it was made by R.L. Allan. The goatskin cover is soft and has a beautiful grain pattern. The scarlet found in the ribbon markers, head and tail bands, and under the gold edged paper make a striking contrast with the black cover, thus making this Bible look simply outstanding. I was using an ESV Heirloom Bible, which at 10 pt is much larger text than in found in this Bible, which is listed as a 9.5 pt. I was worried that this might affect my reading. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the font in the "ESV1 r" is very comfortable on the eyes, and should be easy to read both for study and in the pulpit.
