Serendipity

February 9th, 2014 | By Ian and Dominique Metcalfe | Category: Bibles Direct Latest

The thing about hand-crafting Bibles is that you always seem to end up with more of one element than you expect, and while this can be disappointing, if you don’t get the finished quantity you wanted of a particular colourway or binding style, there are other times when it all comes good…

Like when you turn up at the bindery, and they tell you they’ve discovered they had 60 or so cases left over for the blue version of the NASB single column that was so popular last time around, when you thought it was just going to be black or brown on offer.

Or when you’re waiting for the US publisher to reprint the ESV Single Column Reference Bible so you can get some sheets and bring this much-loved edition back in the Allan’s binding, and then discover that there are actually a couple of hundred sets of sheets left over from the last printing to fill in the gaps.

We also have a few more photos to share from Friday’s visit, of the 53s and NLT Bibles in the final stages of preparation… enjoy!
