The NIV Beautiful Word Bible, Updated Edition is a leathersoft over board, red letter, comfort print edition. It is a work of art, designed for note-taking and Bible journaling.
Here are some pictures of the Bible.
Here is another shot of the Bible.
Several items deserve attention. First, the Bible utilizes “comfort print” which is incredibly easy for reading. Second, there is minimal bleed through. Third, there are verses printed in a variety of ways in the margins (see pictures below). This version is Red Letter Edition, meaning the words of Christ are printed with red ink.
The Bible is designed for note-taking and art journaling. It meets the expectations of such a Bible. The paper is think enough to hold most inks (archival and ball-point would probably be best). With ample room in the side margins, this Bible will serve its user well for many years. It lays flat easily, though it will more like require “breaking in” to lay flat at Genesis 1 without any assistance.
Additional features include a single ribbon and peel and stick Bible tabs. Ribbon is long enough to be useful, supple enough to be un-distracting, and colorful enough to stick out (both from the pages and the color of the binding). The Bible tabs are also colorful (see picture below).
The Bible’s size and beauty makes it worthy of purchase. Particularly for the artistic in mind, this Bible will prove to be a long-lasting treasure. Its price is even more welcoming.
This Bible can be purchased from Amazon, Christianbook, and other retailers. In addition to this binding, there are also two additional bindings for sale.
