The Cameo Edition is a classic Cambridge typesetting of the King James Version, originally produced in the 1920s for letterpress printing. It has been widely admired by generations of readers for its solution to the Bible designer's dilemma of readable type in a manageable size. Unavailable for a while, the Cameo Reference Edition is re-issued in response to continued consumer interest, in a new range of binding styles. The reissue has offered an opportunity for the print image to be enhanced, so while the text is presented in same familiar layout and the original Petit Medieval Clarendon type, it is now sharper than in printings of recent years. The Bible comes with a concordance and 15 colour maps. The text has pronunciation marks for names and the words of Christ on earth are printed in red. In this edition, the goatskin cover is edge-lined, giving the Bible superb suppleness and flexibility. It is printed on India paper with art-gilt edges and has a presentation page and two ribbon markers.… (more)

Five stars on construction of the book, took away stars because of the translation. Readable sure, but certainly not as textually accurate as say an RSV or NRSV from an academic standpoint. ( )

The most perfect size while still providing the wide margin for notes and thoughts to help rememberence. Very disapointing that it is no longer in print. If they ever come back into print, I will stock up. A truely great Bible design, the most handeled book in all my books by far. Nolan-

I actually have a much older edition. It was given to me as a gift in 1981. It is filled with my sermon notes and cross references.
