This Beautifully Designed Bible is a Work of Art – Guest Review by Hayley

I was looking for an NIV translation Bible, and this one was the obvious choice for many reasons.

As a musician, my eye was caught immediately by this gorgeous hand-painted design of musical notes and symbols winding among the delicate flowers against a mint green background.  It is truly beautiful and inspiring.

This Bible is a sturdy clothbound hardcover with pages that are thicker than many Bibles, while certainly still thinner and smoother than a regular book.  Two ribbon markers, one purple, one white make for an easy way to mark favourite passages.  This Bible also includes the words of Christ in red, which I love.  It’s easy to identify when Jesus is talking in the Gospels.  The exclusive typeface is also great.  I read that it is designed for comfortable reading, and I can definitely see that, as it is easy to read without being overly large.  The text also reads like a regular book, rather than in columns like in newsprint.

There is also extra space and lines in the margins for note-taking and artwork.  I am not the type who enjoys writing in my books, but for those who are, this is definitely a plus.

Last but certainly not least – the page edges.  At a glance, when the Bible is closed, the foil-edged pages appear quite normal.  But upon opening the Bible and fanning the pages, dozens of music notes and symbols appear on the page edges, making this Bible and all-around work of art.

I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
