Sneak Peek: Crimson Reader's, Cambridge Cameos, and an iPad App

My stack of Bibles to write about gets taller and taller, so I thought I'd share some snaps of things to come. No reviews here, just some eye candy to whet your appetite. I shot some test photos and figured I should share them. 

CRIMSON READER'S
First, some views of the new R. L. Allan's Reader's Reference ESV (available here and here) bound in crimson goatskin:

CAMBRIDGE CAMEO
I'm very excited about Cambridge's re-introduction of the classic Cameo setting of the KJV. Imagine something with a roughly Pitt Minion footprint, only thicker. There are three flavors of black to choose from -- imitation, split calf, and goatskin -- as well as brown calfskin. I have to say, I'm partial to the grainy split calf KJV with Apocrypha. See below:

The Cameo editions are available for pre-order below. Note that the pre-publication photos aren't representative. The images here represent the actual bindings.

OLIVE TREE ESV STUDY BIBLE FOR IPAD
The iPad was a birthday present from my wife. I promptly installed the Olive Tree ESV Study Bible app, and like it even better than the version for the iPhone.  I'm not sure that I'll actually write this one up, but if you're wondering, it's a worthy application. Behold:

If you turn it sideways, you get a very reader-friendly, BDB-approved single column setting with notes on the outside margin.
