Thumb Nail Sketch

March 26th, 2010 | By Ian and Dominique Metcalfe | Category: Bibles Direct Latest

Have you noticed how difficult it is to track down a thumb indexed Bible nowadays? I think I know why.

There may be as many as 33 tabs to be located at the right page by the craftsman before each notch is cut  and the tabs affixed by hand.

Calculate the cost in time and skill to do that operation and  you can understand why publishers may becoming reluctant to offer thumb indexed Bibles. They simply cost too much to make.

Having said that, we’ll be introducing an indexed style of the Allan Longprimer KJV (#52i )at the end of June.  Some of you tell me you really like an indexed Bible, so your wish is our command.

After all, what is your index finger for if not to find your way around your Bible?
